Workplace Discrimination Archives

Does your employer have to follow ADA regulations?

Like most in Sacramento, you likely take great pride in your career and your ability to thrive within it. That ability can be significantly hindered if you were to develop a disability or acquire one in an accident. Yet part of coping with a disability is being able to continue to do those things which you value (such as working). However, what if your employer tries to tell you that your new limitations prevent you from returning to work? The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits an employer from discriminating against you based on a physical or mental disability. What if your employer, however, claims that it is exempt from having to adhere to it? 

What evidence is needed to prove discrimination?

Discrimination claims in California can often be difficult to prove. The legal system tried very hard to ensure both sides are given fair consideration and opportunity to prove their cases. This means you need to be able to provide adequate proof that discrimination occurred. The law has strict standards as to what burden of proof must be met.

Gender discrimination in the workplace

Working women in California will find themselves running into the gender wage gap time and time again, even in the year 2017. It's an unfortunate truth that gender discrimination still exists even in the modern workplace, and it can have a severe impact on all women working in it.

Understanding affirmative action in the workplace

When people think about affirmative action, they may realize they do not know much about it. Because this policy is designed to help prevent discrimination in the workplace, it can be helpful for California residents to understand how it can affect their workplace.

What is the meaning of disparate impact?

Workplace discrimination can be overt and intentional, as in cases of disparate treatment, but it is no less harmful when it manifests itself in more subtle and unintentional ways, as in cases of disparate impact. California companies that apply policies and procedures that seem to be nondiscriminatory but actually have an adverse impact upon persons within a particular group are liable for the harm caused to them. This kind of disparate impact discrimination at your place of employment is unlawful and may give rise to a claim for relief and compensation.

Transgender protection against employment discrimination

Recent years have been quite busy for those in the LGBT community who have been seeking civil rights. While California is a fairly LGBT-friendly state, there have been some times in the past when situations were not covered by law and actions could be taken to legally discriminate. Transgendered individuals, specifically, still face many barriers to equality. Fortunately, when it comes to employment, transgendered people are protected by federal and state laws.

What you need to know about national origin discrimination

While most employees in California realize that discrimination is illegal, there are many things about this crime that are misunderstood. One of these is the fact that there are multiple kinds of discrimination. One type that is not as well-known is national origin discrimination. We at the Law Office of Jeffrey D. Fulton can defend your rights and work to help you fight against any type of discrimination that you may encounter in the workplace.

What is age discrimination?

Every single day, workers are mistreated in the workplace in a variety of ways. In Sacramento, and in other cities across the state of California, some workers may be subjected to wage and hour violations, such as denied overtime. However, discrimination is particularly widespread and some people do not even recognize the different ways it manifests in workplaces across the state. From racial discrimination to employees experiencing mistreatment over their gender, there are many forms of discrimination. Unfortunately, some workers and job applicants are unlawfully discriminated against due to their age.

Wage discrimination in the modern workplace

Workers in California may believe that everyone in their bracket of work is being paid the same. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. Wage discrimination is still alive and well in the modern workplace, and many vulnerable groups suffer from its ill effects.
