What Is Discrimination and How Am I Protected?
Discrimination occurs when one employee is treated differently than another
employee because of his or her sex,
gender, gender identity, race, color, national origin, religion,
disability, medical condition,
sexual orientation, marital status, military and veteran status. Treating someone differently
because the employee is a friend or a relative is not discrimination.
You are protected under both California law and federal law.
California law offers a broader range of right and remedies than federal
law. California's rights against discrimination are covered under
California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the state
Discrimination Case Result: $750,000 Settlement
The assistant manager of a prominent retail store offered a sales job to
an African-American applicant. The assistant manager was then overruled
by her manager on the basis that an African-American sales person was
not in keeping with the store's image and would frighten away customers.
The assistant manager protested to corporate but the manager's decision
was upheld. The assistant manager was willing to testify and produced
an internal memo documenting the situation.
Proving Discrimination in the Workplace?
To prove discrimination, the employee must prove by substantial evidence
that the reason for the adverse employment action was due to discrimination
based upon race, gender, age, sex and national origin. Mr. Newman believes
this creates an unfair burden on the employee and, as a result, it is
difficult to prove discrimination without the cooperation of an employee.
Discrimination can be proven through the use of statistics. For example,
imagine a company with 10 employees over 40 and 10 employees under 40.
If the company lays off all employees over 40, there would be meaningful,
statistical evidence of discrimination based on age.
