How Does the Law Define Workplace Discrimination?

Discrimination occurs when an employee is treated less favorably or differently from others in the workplace. You may experience this from coworkers, managers, or leaders in your company. Being passed by for job opportunities and income benefits because of your identity or medical condition is illegal.

Proving this behavior in court can be challenging, but your employment lawyer will gather evidence supporting your claim. We will look for documentation, witness statements, and other materials to show that you have suffered treatment such as

  • Actions on the basis of your gender, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy, or veteran status
  • Discrimination in hiring, promotions, bonuses, or project assignment
  • Harassment by management or other employees
  • Illegal questions about your health, marital status, religion, or any other protected factor
  • Refusal to accommodate your needs based on religious practice or disability

All employees are protected against illegal discrimination under various laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, among others.

Potential Damages You Can Receive in a Discrimination Lawsuit

Filing a lawsuit against your employer and any individuals who engage in discrimination can be complicated. However, it is the strongest way to show your company you will not tolerate illegal treatment. Our attorneys can assist you in handling all the paperwork and required materials to take your case to court.

You can request many types of damages in your case, including:

  • Lost wages, bonuses, raises, or other benefits
  • Loss of insurance and retirement savings
  • Reinstatement of your title, rank, time accrued, and pension
  • Medical expenses if you suffered physical harm

In addition to these economic costs, you can request compensation for subjective losses, such as anxiety, depression, emotional distress, fear, intimidation, and damage to your professional reputation.
