Common Types of Workplace Discrimination

El Segundo Attorneys serving Los Angeles, Long Beach & Orange County

Workplace discrimination occurs when an employer takes adverse action against an employee based on one or more factors unrelated to job ability. In the state of California, workplace discrimination may come in the form of being passed up for opportunity, promotion, or pay increases. It may also come in the form of harassment, bullying, and illegal termination. If you have been the victim of workplace discrimination, the Los Angeles employment lawyers at Kirtland & Packard can help.

In the short SlideShare below, we provide 10 examples of discrimination that are illegal in California. Some of these types of discrimination are illegal under federal law, but California has added protected classes to increase fairness in the workplace.
