OUR FOCUS: Race Discrimination
An Experienced Race Discrimination Lawyer Can Help You File a Claim for Race Discrimination at Work
Race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Color discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color complexion.
Race discrimination also can involve treating someone unfavorably because the person is married to (or associated with) a person of a certain race or color.
Race Discrimination at Work
The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
Race discrimination laws in California prohibit employers from discriminating against any employee because of the employee’s race or ethnicity. One of the guiding legal principles of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is to prohibit California employers from discriminating against an individual based on race or ethnicity.
FEHA requires employers that have at least five employees to comply with the California civil rights law. The five-employee minimum is a more restrictive requirement than what is established by the Civil rights Act of 1964, which sets the minimum number of employees at 15.
FEHA does much more than prohibit discrimination against employees. The California civil rights law also bans discrimination against the following groups:
- Unpaid volunteers
