Discrimination is one of the most common workplace violations, yet far too many employees remain unaware of their legal right to fair treatment. Both Federal Law and State Law have strict rules regarding workplace discrimination on the grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, and more.

However, despite the strict federal and state laws, discrimination in the workplace is a brutal reality, and violations of federal and state discrimination laws keep happening. That’s where a discrimination attorney can assist you.

Feel free to reach us anytime to get a free consultation from our vastly skilled and experienced discrimination lawyers.

Federal Law for Employment Discrimination

The United States’ justice system strictly forbids any type of unjust workplace or employment discrimination. While state and local laws provide further protection and prohibit employers from unlawful discriminatory practices, federal laws prohibiting workplace discrimination include:

  •         Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  •         The Equal Pay Act of 1963
  •         The Age Discrimination Act of 1967
  •         The Rehabilitation Act of 1973;
  •         The Civil Rights Act of 1991.
  •         The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978

Types of Workplace Discrimination Prohibited by Federal Law

Both prospective and current employees are legally protected by federal and state laws, banning discrimination in the workplace based on the following cases:

  • Disability Discrimination :

    If unfair treatment of an employee or failure to consider a job based on a disability occurs, it qualifies as a case of disability discrimination.

    Either mental or physical disabilities, they are a fact and people with such a condition are legally protected.

  • Discrimination Based On Race, Color :

    Discrimination based on race, color, or ethnicity is very common in the United States. Different racial groups are targeted based on race, color, or ethnic identity.

    Have you witnessed a case like that? If yes, contact us and avail the services of our discrimination lawyers to get justice against these unlawful discriminatory practices.

  • Pregnancy Discrimination :

    Women who are pregnant or hoping to become pregnant are legally protected from discrimination and any form of employer retaliation.

    Sadly, many women are not aware of these legal protections and end up losing their status, promotions, and other hard-earned benefits due only to becoming pregnant.  
  • Gender Discrimination :

    Gender discrimination (sex discrimination) is when an employer gives preferential treatment to either men or women. Though common, it is not easy to prove that an employer’s actions violate the “terms and conditions” of the employment contract.

    Our team can help you identify discriminatory behavior and get good compensation. So, contact us now if you are facing gender discrimination.

  • LGBTQ+ or Sexual Orientation Discrimination :

    Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are protected from workplace discrimination by the Supreme Court ruling.

    Common forms of discrimination against these people include denying access to bathroom facilities, insufficient health insurance coverage, and verbal, physical, or sexual harassment.

  • Age Discrimination :

    Due to the changing nature of California’s workplaces, age discrimination has got a lot more common recently. It can deprive both old and young qualified employees of employment opportunities.

    But, age preference is a violation of anti-discrimination laws and should be handled with the help of an employment lawyer.
