Employer Discrimination is a Federal and State Violation

When an employer acts discriminatorily against their employees, they are in violation of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and should be held accountable. There are various ways that employees have to deal with discrimination, and several are listed below:

  • Unjust treatment because of the employee’s age, gender, race, color, religion, sexual preference, or nationality
  • Workplace harassment that is sexual, ageist, or ableist in nature
  • When workplace accommodations are requested but denied so that an employer cannot safely practice their religion or work around their disability temporary or permanent
  • Questions that should not be asked about the genetics or medical information of the employee
  • When retaliation occurs if an employee calls out their employer for discrimination

If you are experiencing workplace discrimination, contact Aegis Law. We will work tirelessly to ensure you are treated fairly.

California residents have additional protection from the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). This law provides those employed in the state with a defense against workplace discrimination, harassment, or retaliation for calling out discrimination or harassment. FEHA applies to businesses that employ at least five full or part-time workers.

The FEHA recognizes an employer as one or more individuals, companies, corporations, or partnerships. The FEHA applies to public and private employers as well as labor organizations, training programs for apprentices, licensing boards, and employment agencies.
