Standing Up Against Discrimination in the Workplace
It seems hard to believe that discrimination in the workplace still exists. And yet men and women nationwide may find it difficult to get a job or face unfair treatment at work due to an employer’s racist, homophobic or otherwise discriminatory beliefs and practices.
Discrimination based on race, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or gender identity is illegal under California state and/or federal employment law.
