Fighting For Victims of Workplace Discrimination in the San Fernando Valley

Workplace discrimination is against the law; both state and federal laws ban various types of discrimination. Discrimination can occur in many ways and through many actions pertaining to employment, from hiring to firing and all of the activities in between.

What is Discrimination?

Workplace discrimination often occurs when an employer treats an employee unfairly based on specific protected characteristics. These characteristics often include race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, and, in some jurisdictions, sexual orientation and gender identity. Discrimination may manifest in various states, including hiring, firing, pay, promotions, job assignments, layoffs, training, fringe benefits, and other employment terms or conditions.

Understanding Workplace Discrimination

As an employee or prospective employee, you should have as positive and safe a work environment as possible without:

  • Anxiety
  • Embarrassment
  • Stress
  • Humiliation of any type of discrimination

If you have encountered discrimination while on the job or while pursuing employment, you should seek the legal counsel of a dedicated employment law attorney. K2 Employment Law focuses its practice on representing employees against employers who have engaged in unethical or illegal treatment, such as discriminatory behavior. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience to bring to the table in helping you seek justice and preventing unscrupulous employers from continuing their misconduct.

State & Federal Discrimination Law

Federal laws that prohibit workplace discrimination include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the Age Discrimination Act of 1967, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Civil Rights Act of 1991. State law that prohibits discrimination includes the Fair Employment Housing Act.

California law bans discrimination based on:

  • Race or color
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Age (for those over 40)
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy
  • Medical condition
  • Marital status
  • Military status (or veteran status)

Discrimination can occur when applying for employment or after being hired in a variety of forms, including general harassment and sexual harassment, being passed over for a promotion, being demoted, being given the worst work shifts or work assignments, being paid less than others in a similar position while maintaining good work performance, inappropriate jokes, slurs, or other communications, and more.

What Proof Do I Need in a Discrimination Case?

Proving workplace discrimination can be challenging, but it's not impossible. While each case is unique, there are common types of evidence that can strengthen your claim:

  • Documentation: Keep detailed records of discriminatory incidents, including dates, times, witnesses, and any relevant communications (emails, memos, texts, etc.).
  • Witness Statements: Collect statements from coworkers or supervisors who have witnessed discriminatory behavior or who can corroborate your experiences.
  • Performance Reviews: If your employer's actions contradict positive performance evaluations, use these reviews to demonstrate disparate treatment.
  • Comparative Evidence: Show how similarly situated employees outside of your protected class were treated more favorably in similar situations.
  • Policies and Procedures: Review your employer's policies and procedures to identify any discrimination-related inconsistencies or violations.
  • Medical Records: If applicable, provide medical documentation to support disability discrimination claims or failure to accommodate.
