If you suspect that you have been a victim of discrimination based on your age, race, gender, or another reason, it's important to know that federal and state laws prohibit such behavior by employers. At Polaris Law Group, we understand that discrimination is a serious issue in the workplace.
In California, the following anti-discrimination laws are in place:
- California Fair Employment and Housing Act
- Equal Pay Act of 1963

Recognizing discrimination can be challenging for employees, as the laws in California cover a broad range of legal issues and cases.
Instances of age, race, and gender discrimination may include:
- Failure to hire or promote individuals from these groups
- Termination based on age, race, or gender

Understanding Workplace Discrimination Definitions
The law clearly defines the elements of age, race, and gender discrimination, but proving such discrimination can be challenging in certain cases.
Therefore, it is crucial to maintain records and documents that detail the discriminatory behavior and actions you have experienced. The more evidence you gather, the stronger your case becomes.
Here are the definitions of workplace discrimination:
If you have been denied a promotion or replaced by a younger, less experienced employee, you may be a victim of age discrimination. Similarly, employers who favor younger workers over older employees in hiring decisions may be violating laws against age discrimination.
Unfair treatment based on physical characteristics, language, culture, or ancestry may indicate racial discrimination. Certain questions on job applications can reveal bias, as can the refusal to promote someone because of their race.
If you are a woman who has been paid less than male counterparts for performing the same tasks, you could be a victim of gender discrimination. Gender discrimination also encompasses being overlooked for positions or advancement opportunities given to male colleagues despite having equivalent qualifications. Furthermore, sexual harassment constitutes a form of gender discrimination. Both men and women can experience gender discrimination, although it is more prevalent among female employees.
Other Forms of Workplace Discrimination Include:
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Disability discrimination
