Definition of discrimination
In California, discrimination is the unfair or prejudicial treatment of people in the workplace based on unjustified distinctions about what groups or categories they belong to or seem to belong to.
Laws against discrimination exist to safeguard a person's right to seek, obtain, and hold employment without experiencing prohibited discrimination.
Types of discrimination
Attorneys in California handle many discrimination cases that are based on:
Race and color,
Military and veteran status,
Direct and indirect discrimination in the workplace
There are many different forms that discrimination can take in the workplace, both indirect and direct.
Direct discrimination exists in a workplace where someone is treated less favorably because of their protected characteristics (e.g., didn't get a promotion because of race, gender, age, etc.).
Indirect discrimination occurs when a workplace policy applies to everybody but puts some people with protected characteristics at a disadvantage (e.g., people who celebrate religious holidays or pregnant women).
