Federal and state laws prevent employment discrimination in California for certain protected classes.
Under federal law, an employer may not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, national origin, disability or age.
In many states, it is also illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Discrimination could mean unfair hiring practices, creating a hostile work environment or unfair promotion schemes.
