What Laws Protect Employees from Discrimination?

Employees are protected against discrimination under federal and state legislation. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act are two of the most important of these legislation. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees based on their religious beliefs, race, national origin, colour, ancestry, mental or physical impairment, marital status, sex, gender or gender identity, expression, age, sexual orientation, or military or veteran status under these laws. Discrimination against those who have a genetic predisposition to sickness is likewise unlawful in California. It is against state law to test employees for genetic markers.

What Qualifies as Workplace Discrimination?

Recognizing workplace discrimination is the first step in taking action. Certain actions, events, attitudes, and behavior should be considered discriminatory red flags. Learning how to identify discrimination and take swift action is an important skill for any employee to possess. Discrimination is defined as any treatment of one person differently than his or her peers because of a protected class.
