In California’s current economy, finding a good job is challenging under most circumstances. However, things can be even worse for those that face employment discrimination. It can lead to unfair wages, lack of promotions or even wrongful termination. Overall, it’s good to be educated on the law if you ever become a victim of workplace discrimination.

What are the different kinds of employment discrimination?

Unfortunately, there are many ways an employer can discriminate against a person. It’s good to be knowledgeable regarding employment discrimination law. With this knowledge, a person should be able to ensure that employers do indeed play by the rules. Below are some of the most common forms of workplace discrimination:

  • sex discrimination
  • age discrimination
  • disability discrimination
  • racial discrimination
  • religious discrimination
  • national origin discrimination
  • pregnancy discrimination
  • sexual orientation discrimination
  • sexual harassment
  • retaliation

How do you find evidence of employment discrimination?

While discrimination in the workplace is all too common, it is also hard to prove in a courtroom. If you wish to pursue a case over workplace discrimination, you should go about persevering evidence that proves that discrimination did occur. For example, if you can demonstrate that you were the victim of wrongful termination without due cause, you may be able to succeed in a lawsuit. Go about obtaining witness testimony, work records, video or sound recordings and more. In some instances, a discrimination lawsuit can be proven purely through circumstantial evidence.

Building an employment discrimination case will require supplying evidence that helps make it obvious to a judge and jury that you were retaliated against or fired illegally by that employer. Building such a case requires preparation. Expect the process to take a significant amount of time.
