WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION: TYPES AND EXAMPLES
Both federal law and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibit employers from discriminating against workers and job applicants on the basis of several factors, including:
- Religious beliefs
- Sexual orientation
- Marital status
Discrimination at work can take several forms. Common tactics include:
- Refusing to hire a qualified job applicant because her names indicate a certain race or ethnicity
- Repeatedly passing over a female employee for promotion and promoting less talented men instead
- Firing an employee with a history of positive performance reviews shortly after he comes out at work as transgendered
Proving that an illegal bias was the motivating factor behind the employer’s actions can be difficult, but Gregory Kirakosian will interview you carefully to get a clear picture of what happened to you. Next, he will pursue litigation against the employer and gather evidence of the company’s misconduct. As the victim of workplace discrimination, you could be entitled to substantial financial compensation.
