Race, Gender, Disability & Pregnancy Harassment Claims

Many workers believe that the law protects them from any unfair treatment in the workplace. Harassment, however, is illegal only if it is related to specific characteristics defined by federal and state statutes.

In California, these protected characteristics include protection for employees because of their age, physical or mental disability, medical condition, work-related injury, race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or pregnancy.

A complex interaction of federal, state and local statutes creates confusing filing requirements, deadlines and procedures which must be strictly followed before moving forward with a discrimination claim.
