Workplace discrimination is illegal and happens in a variety of ways
Workplace discrimination is prohibited under both state and federal law. First, we want to look at federal protections that prohibit discrimination. When we turn to the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), it is clear that federal law prohibits a person from facing discrimination in the workplace due to their:
- Genetic Information
- National Origin
Additionally, workers in this state have specific protection laws outlining discrimination prohibitions. According to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), state law mostly mirrors federal law, but also offers a wider range of protections. California law also prohibits a person from being discriminated against based on their gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. California law also protects workers from being discriminated against based on their marital status.
