In California, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) prohibits workplace discrimination. FEHA makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of the employee’s race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status.
Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees in terms of the compensation paid, conditions of employment or privileges of employment, based on these classifications. Employers are also prohibited from terminating an employee or failing to hire someone based on these classifications.
