WORKING CONDITIONS RIGHTS
You have the right to fair and safe working conditions on the job. Several Federal and California labor laws have been enacted to protect your employment rights and prevent your employer from engaging in discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, or failing to accommodate your protected needs in the workplace. Below is an overview of some of the various protections that California law offers.
Both Federal and California law prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on what are called “protected characteristics.” Employers are not permitted to discriminate against the protected characteristics of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion. Employers are also prohibited from discriminating against their employees based on a disability, age, pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.
Discrimination claims may be brought on the basis of discriminatory intent or disparate impact, among other basis. To prove discriminatory intent the employee must demonstrate that they suffered because of the discriminatory negative actions by the employer, such as a demotion because of a protected characteristic. To prove disparate impact, the employee must show that the employer’s policy, procedure, or rule had a disproportionately adverse effect on the employees who are members of a protected class, but not on other employees.
