Workplace discrimination commonly takes place when an employer treats a job applicant or current employee unfairly or with prejudice based on their sex, race, or gender. The highly unethical and illegal act of workplace discrimination should never be tolerated. If you have faced workplace discrimination, consult with an experienced discrimination attorney. Contact JML Law in Long Beach at 818-610-8800 to consult with one of our Workplace Discrimination Attorneys. Allow our legal experts to ensure that your rights are not being dismissed.

California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) enforces all laws and regulations that prohibit workplace discrimination. These laws apply to all public and private employers, labor organizations and employment agencies. The DFEH enforces the following summarized laws and employer requirements:

  1. It is illegal for employers to discriminate against their current employees or applicants.
  2. It is illegal for employers to retaliate against their employees or applicants because they have reported a violation of their rights.
  3. Prohibits prejudice and harassment against employees, applicants, unpaid interns, volunteers, or contractors.
  4. The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and The New Parent Leave Act (NPLA) employer requirements
  5. Employers of five or more employees must provide up to four months of disability leave for an employee who is disabled due to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition.
  6. Employers of 50 or more employees are required to provide sexual harassment training to supervisory employees.

Workplace Discrimination And Statistics

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released a report that 84,254 charges were filed in 2017 for workplace discrimination. It is illegal for employers to discriminate against job applicants or employers because of:

  1. Race, color
  2. Ancestry, national origin
  3. Religion, creed
  4. Age (over 40)
  5. Disability, mental and physical
  6. Sex, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical conditions)
  7. Sexual orientation
  8. Gender identity, gender expression
  9. Medical condition
  10. Genetic information
  11. Marital status
  12. Military and veteran status

The law does allow for remedies to be given based on the combined emotional, financial, and personal harm workplace discrimination can place on an employee. According to the EEOC, the average cost of defense and settlement payment for discrimination cases is $160,000. These remedies or settlements could include:

  1. Back pay
  2. Future lost earnings
  3. Reinstatement
  4. Promotion
  5. Damages for emotional trauma or distress
  6. Punitive damages (fines the employer must pay as punishment)
  7. Attorney fees and costs
  8. Policy changes and training

Workplace discrimination suits can take the better part of a year to reach a conclusion. The ramifications for an employee to be out of work for this length of time is formidable, to say the least, not to mention the potential for emotional and personal trauma. The process of filing, proving, and building a workplace discrimination suit can be lengthy and discouraging.
