California law is very clear on shielding several protected classes of people from discrimination based on certain legally recognized categories and characteristics. Under state law, employers may not discriminate against employees or prospective employees based on any of the following characteristics.

Employment Discrimination Characteristics:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Color
  • National Origin or ancestry
  • Physical Disability
  • Mental Disability
  • Medical Condition
  • Marital status
  • Sex (Gender)
  • Age (if you are over 40)
  • Sexual orientation

Discrimination can take many forms. It may take place early on during job interviews. It can occur when asking for a promotion or an increase in pay. It can occur when you are terminated from your employment. Some employers may pay members of certain groups less than members of other groups. In California, the laws for equal pay were strengthened through the California Fair Pay Act (SB 358), which requires equal pay for employees who perform “substantially similar work, when viewed as a composite of skill, effort, and responsibility.” Some employers may also refuse to hire job applicants based on their gender. Others may refuse to promote members of a certain race.

In all these instances, Federal and California laws protect you if you are experiencing discrimination in the workplace.
