Recognizing Employment Discrimination in the Workplace

According to federal laws under the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, workplace discrimination is defined as prejudicial treatment towards an employee on the basis of any of the following criteria:

  • Race

  • Color

  • Religion

  • Age

  • Sex (including sexual orientation, gender identity, and pregnancy)

  • National origin

  • Disability status

  • Genetic information

Discrimination has many forms, but it commonly manifests as unfair treatment or harassment based on any of the protected classes above. In addition, it can exist in the form of inappropriate questions (often involving private genetic or medical information) or retaliation after an employee reports discrimination (or participates with any related legal proceedings). It’s also important to note that the EEOC employment laws apply to all applicants, employees, and former employees, regardless of citizenship status.

In some instances, discrimination or harassment in the workplace can be challenging to recognize, and even more challenging to prove. It can also leave yourself or your fellow employees questioning valid experiences. This is where our seasoned team of attorneys comes into play. No matter how subtle instances of workplace discrimination may appear, our team is here to help you reveal the truth. We will work relentlessly to prevent unjust actions from being swept under the rug as “harmless” or “unintentional.”

Experiencing harassment or discrimination in the workplace often takes a tremendous toll on employees: not only can it cap their economic opportunities—directly influencing an employee’s pay, opportunities for promotion, job assignments, and more—but it can significantly impact an employee’s physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing both inside and outside of the workplace.

At the end of the day, the law is very clear when it comes to workplace violations—and we’re here to help you set the record straight.

If you have experienced these or ANY other form of unlawful treatment in the workplace, contact us to schedule a free consultation with one of our trusted attorneys. Call us today at (714) 592-4936 to start pursuing the justice you deserve.

Move Forward in Your Career & Life

It can be confusing to know who to turn to for help when your employer violates your rights at work. Not all employment law attorneys are cut from the same cloth – some can be overly stuffy and rigid while others can be too casual to be taken seriously.

At Gould Law Firm, we like to think we strike a balance on that spectrum to provide service that can inspire confidence without sacrificing a personal touch for each client. We also won’t unnecessarily throw legal jargon at you to gain your trust – we believe that can be accomplished by explaining everything in plain English so you really know what’s going on.

It can be hard to choose where you get employment law services in Santa Ana, but at The Gould Law Firm, we can offer a free consultation to help you get a peek at how we may be able to help.
