There are many ways that California employees suffer from discrimination. It could be discrimination based on race, national origin, sexual preference, gender, political persuasion, disability and other issues. Regardless of the type of discrimination, workers may be able to seek protection from the discriminatory treatment under federal law. These powerful protections give workers the right to hold their employers legally accountable and financially liable for the harm that the discriminatory actions caused.
