Most people experience unfairness at work during their lifetime, but determining whether it was an upsetting experience or an action that violates employment law can be difficult.
Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees under federal and California law. Under both federal and California law, employers must not discriminate against employees based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or age. They also must not discriminate against people with disabilities when those disabilities can be reasonably accommodated.
