Discrimination should never be tollerated. Workplace discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee or job applicant less favorably than other employees or applicants because of a specific personal characteristic, such as race, gender, color or marital status. ⁠

In many cases, #California employers are not allowed discrimination against employees by firing, refusing to hire, demoting, refusing to promote, or taking other negative employment actions against members of a protected class. Questions? Contact us for a free consultation. ⁠

10/23/2020
