What Are My Rights as an Employee in California?
California is the nation’s most employee-friendly state. The state recognises the most extensive list of employee protected categories. If your employer discriminates against you because of your race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender expression, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, age, genetic information, or military/veteran status, they are breaking the law, and you, the employee, can sue them for discrimination.
California, on the other hand, is an at-will employment state. That implies your employer can dismiss you (with some exceptions) without providing you a cause, and you can quit without giving notice. However, if you are a member of one of the protected groups listed below and are discriminated against or fired, you have the right to file a lawsuit against your employer.

What Should I Do If I’m Experiencing Employer Discrimination?
If you believe you are being discriminated against at work, the first action you should do is to try to settle the situation through your Human Resources department. If you fail to take this crucial step, your employer will almost certainly claim that they were unaware of any discrimination against you because you never raised the issue or filed a complaint. If your employer refuses to address the problem, you should contact The Pacific Attorney Group workplace discrimination lawyers immediately away. All of our consultations are completely free and private. We can explain your rights to you and, if necessary, assist you in acquiring the evidence you'll need to support your case.
