What is Los Angeles Job Discrimination?
Answered by our Los Angeles Discrimination Lawyers
If your employer does not like you and fires you, it is not necessarily actionable discrimination. The employer must be discriminating based on a “protected category” for the discrimination to be illegal.
There are several federal laws prohibiting job discrimination.
If you believe you have been discriminated against by an employer, labor union or employment agency when applying for a job or while on the job because of your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability, or believe that you have been discriminated against because of opposing a prohibited practice or participating in an equal employment opportunity matter, you may file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC. Charges may be filed in person, by mail or by telephone by contacting the nearest EEOC office. We have a Los Angeles discrimination lawyer that can assist you in filling your claim.
