Are You the Victim of Workplace Discrimination in Pleasanton, CA?

Discrimination in the workplace is illegal. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), an employer cannot make any employment decisions based on an employee’s race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information. This means that an employer cannot discriminate against an employee or potential employee in any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, promotions, benefits, job assignments, training, and any other term or condition of employment.

What is Workplace Discrimination?

Workplace discrimination refers to unfair or prejudicial treatment of employees or job applicants based on the characteristics mentioned above. Discrimination can occur in various forms, both subtle and overt, and can negatively impact an individual's employment opportunities, work environment, and overall well-being.

Common examples of workplace discrimination include:

  • Hiring Bias: When an employer makes hiring decisions based on factors unrelated to job qualifications, such as race, gender, or age.
  • Pay Discrimination: Paying employees differently for performing the same job based on their gender, race, or other protected characteristics.
  • Promotion Bias: Denying promotions or advancement opportunities to qualified individuals because of their race, gender, or other protected status.
  • Harassment: Subjecting employees to unwanted or offensive behavior, such as sexual harassment, racial slurs, or derogatory remarks based on protected characteristics.
  • Retaliation: Punishing employees for complaining about discrimination or participating in discrimination investigations or proceedings.
  • Hostile Work Environment: Creating a work environment that is intimidating, offensive, or hostile due to discrimination or harassment based on protected characteristics.

What Are My Rights as an Employee?

Employees have the right to work in an environment free from discrimination. If you are a victim of workplace discrimination, you may be entitled to compensation.
