What Types of Discrimination Are Employees Protected From?
If you believe you were barred from employment, passed up for promotion or otherwise treated unequally in your workplace due to your physical condition, identity or stance against inappropriate behavior, you may be able to make a valid discrimination claim.
Federal laws prevent employment discrimination based on:
- National origin
- Genetic information
- Sexual harassment
- Equal pay/compensation
Additional protections for employees may be offered at the state level. Because laws are always shifting in regard to this area, it is best to contact a knowledgeable employment attorney to advise you on how current federal and California laws apply to your case.
How Our Discrimination Attorney Can Help Your Case
At the Law Office of Scott Ernest Wheeler, I carefully examine the details of your situation and advise you on whether or not your discrimination claim is likely to hold up in the eyes of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the national agency that exists to enforce anti-discrimination laws, or in subsequent civil litigation.

How To Deal With Discrimination In The Workplace
Workplace discrimination and harassment can go hand in hand. There are federal, state, and local laws that prohibit workplace discrimination and harassment and safeguard the rights of employees. What can you do if you are a victim of workplace discrimination?
Here are some strategies for dealing with discrimination:
- Inform your employer that you are experiencing discrimination and that you are treating the problem seriously.
- If your employer fails to react, you should strongly consider calling the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
- Make a record of all instances of discrimination or harassment. Make sure that you include the day, hour, place, names of everyone involved (including any witnesses), and the specifics of what occurred.
Keep any items you consider to be racist or harassing. Include photos that have been posted or left for you. When it comes to establishing your case, having the original object or a photo of the discriminatory display will better help demonstrate the situation.
- Check your organization's anti-discrimination policy and keep a copy so that you may reference it for your case.
