What is Employment Discrimination?
Employment discrimination includes discriminating against employees or potential employees on the basis of race, sex, religion, nationality, age, and physical and mental disability. Employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is also a developing body of law. Laws against employment discrimination apply to all steps of the employment process such as interviewing, hiring, advertising, promoting, and terminating employees. Fortunately, California has some of the strongest non-discrimination laws in the U.S., including laws that specifically prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identification and gender expression in the workplace. While this is good news to the members of the gay community, the mere presence of laws do not stop workplace discrimination from occurring.
