Discrimination

What Does Workplace Discrimination Look Like?

Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms and, increasingly, may be harder to name at first. Generally, discrimination involves negative treatment in your job from discipline to suspension to wrongful termination.


Employees may experience workplace discrimination when they are mistreated due to:

  • Gender
  • Gender identity
  • Gender expression
  • Age
  • Sexual orientation
  • Military or veteran status
  • Conduct outside of legal service
  • Reporting or objecting to what you reasonably believe to be violations of state or federal law or
  • The exercise of their labor rights

Defending California Workers For Over 15 Years

Liberation Law Group, P.C. has extensive experience in fighting for these rights, either through private and confidential negotiations, or through litigation and trial. We have successfully fought technology companies and government entities, both large and small. And while we never back down from a fight, we also regularly help our clients achieve their goals through less vocal means with increased collaboration where appropriate. We also have experience guiding employees through work matters such as taking pregnancy or medical breaks, requesting reasonable accommodations, or negotiating employment and severance agreements.

Discrimination at work can also include English-Only policies or discrimination based on accent, denial of promotions, and unequal pay. California law also has a growing protections for pregnant employees—both in the form of accommodations on the job, maternity and medical leave, nursing protections and lactation accommodations.

What Qualifies As A Hostile Work Environment In California?

California defines a hostile work environment as one where discrimination is pervasive, to the extent that employees have difficulty doing their jobs and feel their safety and well-being are compromised. Some characteristics of a hostile work environment include:

• Aggression

• Bullying

• Discrimination and harassment against protected classes

• Discriminatory hiring and advancement practices

• Excessive competition

• Exclusion

• Retaliation

• Sexual harassment

An isolated incident of any of these behaviors is not enough to establish a hostile work environment; to meet the threshold, there must be a consistent pattern of disruption to workers. To determine whether the issues at your workplace are indicative of a hostile work environment, contact one of our employment law attorneys.
