What do you mean by Workplace Discrimination?
When an important decision about an employee’s performance or growth is taken by the employer because of certain unrelated factors, overlooking their productivity at work, can be called as workplace discrimination. Employees can be discriminated on the basis of their age, race, gender, national origin, religion or pregnancy. These factors are used by the employer to discriminate against them, while deciding on important things like promotions, performance reviews, demotions, terminations etc.
Workplace discrimination happens in different ways. Sometimes, it is just deliberately harassing an employee. Subjecting them to constant racist or sexist remarks. Or cracking inappropriate jokes about the race or gender or nationality.
In some cases, the discrimination is not obvious. Taking disciplinary actions, or giving negative performance reviews, overlooking an employee for promotion or a raise, because of their race, sex, nationality etc.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 along with other federal and California state laws pertaining to employment and labor, forbids any kind of workplace discrimination in an organization. Our team of workplace discrimination lawyers at Khashan Law have taken up organizations and have taken strict action against them for supporting:
- National, religious or racial discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Gender and pregnancy discrimination
- Sexual orientation discrimination
- Discriminating refutations for family and medical leave
The conditions for pursuing and filing a discrimination claim is extremely complex and confusing. You need to follow strict filing deadlines and also follow stringent documentation procedures.
