What Type of Behavior is Considered Employment Discrimination in California?
Employment discrimination is when an employee is being treated unfairly because of their connection to one or more of the previously listed protected characteristics.
Common examples of workplace discrimination in California and throughout the country may include:
Harassment in the workplace may include abusive language, rude gestures, unwanted physical contact, and/or the intimidation of an employee who is a member of a protected class.
- Harsher Disciplinary Procedures
Scrutinizing the work of a member of a protected class more harshly, or disciplining employees in protected categories more severely.
- Unjust Negative Performance Reviews
Negative performance reviews based on their membership in a protected class, rather than their actual job performance.
Assigning different job duties or separating employees into different departments based on their membership in a protected class.
- Failing to Hire or Promote
Excluding an employee from specific projects or professional development based on stereotypical assumptions associated with their membership in a protected class.
- Wrongful Termination
Selecting an employee for layoff for a discriminatory reason or terminating an employee for something that another employee — who is not a member of a protected class — would not have been terminated for.
Discrimination can occur at any relationship level with an employer, including during the recruitment process, while interviewing, within the hiring process, or the employee’s day-to-day performance of the job, promotion, or termination.

You Have Rights as a California Employee: We Will Help Protect Them
If you have been the target of employment discrimination but are not sure how to identify it properly for legal purposes, allow our skilled employment law attorneys to do the work for you.
As the workplace has evolved, and extraordinary protections have been put in place, some discriminatory acts are easily hidden behind old habits and complacency, making them harder to recognize the longer you are with the company.
If you have witnessed or experienced discrimination in the workplace, you have the right to file a complaint with your employer about the wrongful action or inaction you were a party to without the fear of — or actual — retaliation.
If your employer retaliates against you for reporting discriminatory behavior in the workplace, they may be liable for more than one unlawful act.
At E&L, LLP, our employment discrimination attorneys in Beverly Hills & Los Angeles encouraged anyone who is a protected class to contact our law firm right away if they are experiencing bias in the workplace to assess what type of legal recourse is available for their unique circumstances, and the type of financial compensation they may be entitled to for their treatment.
