Understanding The California Fair Employment And Housing Act
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits employment discrimination or harassment based on race, religion, national origin, disability, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy or other medical conditions. FEHA also protects against retaliation for opposing any practice the statute forbids or for filing a complaint, testifying or assisting in investigative proceedings.
Under this act, it is the duty of every employer to promptly investigate workplace harassment or discrimination and effectively resolve the problem, including disciplining the responsible party. Employers are also required to accommodate for disabilities and other work restrictions. All investigations must be conducted in good faith. For disability accommodation, employers must conduct what is called an interactive process to determine what adjustments can be made. If accommodations cannot be made, they must give a reasonable explanation as to why not.
