Labor Lawyers for Inglewood Employees

Discrimination is prohibited in the workplace by both federal and state laws. Prohibited reasons for discrimination include: national origin, pregnancy, disability, color, religion, gender, and race. Likewise, California’s labor laws provide prohibitions against discrimination due to an individual’s sex or resulting medical conditions.

Employers are required to take reasonable steps to prevent harassment based on any of those protected characteristics, as well as harassment based on breastfeeding, pregnancy, childbirth, or other medical conditions.

In general, California’s state laws provide employees greater protection than federal law. For example, California prohibits workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Penalties can be imposed against an employer that fails to adequately protect employees from discrimination or harassment. Those penalties include out-of-pocket expenses related to the suit, lost wages, compensation due to wrongful termination, an injunction against an employer for unlawful harassment and discrimination practices, fines for violating nondiscrimination statutes, civil liability penalties, and punitive damages.

Disability discrimination laws go a step beyond most other discrimination in the workplace laws. In certain circumstances, the law requires employers to make accommodations that will allow a qualified disabled employee to perform a job adequately. Reasonable accommodations can sometimes include things like wheelchair accessible work areas, time of for temporary disabilities, or obtaining technology that permits hearing-impaired workers to use the phone.

Interpreting the Law

There are many forms of discrimination in the workplace. It occurs when decisions are made to hire or fire employees, as sexual harassment, in retaliation for reporting or drawing attention to discriminatory incidents or practices, and in failure to promote.

To maintain a discriminatory action, the reason has to be something the law prohibits. Discrimination and harassment are complicated issues. It can be helpful for employees to enlist the services of a lawyer familiar with both federal and state law.

In Inglewood, anti-discrimination laws apply to every aspect of employment including the interview process, hiring, layoffs, promotions, employee benefits, and job responsibilities.
