DISCRIMINATION IN WORK

 

Workplace discrimination happens in all work environments. Many Silicon Valley executives are discriminated against based upon their country of origin as well as a variety of protected characteristics. In Santa Clara County we have also handled workplace discrimination cases for pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment. Our Santa Clara county clients have ranged from minimum wage workers to professionals with ten-figure incomes.

 

Work discrimination is illegal under California and Federal employment law. The following is a brief list of protected characteristics:

 

  • Age over 40
  • Ancestry
  • Color
  • Disability
  • Family Medical Leave Act Exercise of Rights (CFRA in California)
  • Medical Conditions (cancer, genetics, H.I.V. status)
  • National Origin
  • Pregnancy
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation

 

Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation are prohibited. Work discrimination involves unequal, disparate treatment due to a protected characteristic. It may also involve stereotypical notions or absurd perceptions. Harassment involves the verbal, physical, or written targeting of an employee due to a protected characteristic. In order to determine if workplace discrimination, harassment, or retaliation is illegal it is best to consult with an experienced employment discrimination lawyer.

 

EEOC EMPLOYMENT LAW

 

Because California employment laws are more favorable than Federal employment laws, our discrimination attorneys rarely utilize EEOC right-to-sue letters based upon Federal law.

 

Our discrimination attorneys will use Federal EEOC law in the following circumstances:

 

  • A client went through the EEOC and exhausted their administrative remedies, they were not exhausted in the DFEH on a California state level and it is too late to obtain a right-to-sue letter from the California Department of Fair Housing and Employment

  • The employment discrimination case is against a religious organization. California employment discrimination laws found in FEHA (the Fair Employment & Housing Act) do not apply to religious entity employers

 

Whether an employee believes California employment discrimination laws were violated, or Federal EEOC employment laws, we would appreciate hearing from you. Please contact our employment discrimination law firm at 1-877-525-0700.
