Los Angeles Race Discrimination Lawyers
Sherman Oaks Employee Rights Attorneys
Race discrimination or harassment is one of the most egregious violations of the law in the workplace. No employee should face different treatment on account of their race. Our Firm has broad experience prosecuting race discrimination and harassment claims.
The California Fair Employment & Housing Act prohibits discriminatory employment practices in most cases towards “any person.” California law prohibits an employer from discriminating against an employee because of her race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, age (if 40 or over), or pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. The prohibition against discrimination may extend to “temps,” or even persons providing services pursuant to a contract. It is also unlawful for the employer to act upon the perception that the employee has one of the above protected characteristics. Unlawful discrimination may include refusing to hire or employ, refusing to select for a training program, discharging from employment or discriminating in compensation or conditions of employment. Discriminating behavior may consist of a series of acts, rather than one significant event.
