Both federal and state laws in California prohibit discrimination in the workplace. This area of the law is vast as there are many types of discrimination. From age, gender, disability, pregnancy and sexual orientation to race, ethnicity, religion and national origin, these are just some of the types of discrimination an employee may have been victim of at work.
Even though California has some of the strongest employee rights laws in the nation, some employers still end up violating them.
