4 common categories of on-the-job discrimination

Workplace discrimination takes a variety of forms and if your discrimination falls under the category of a "protected status," you may have the support of powerful state and federal laws to pursue financial justice in court. For example, if you were discriminated for any of the following for reasons -- and you can gather the facts and evidence to prove it in court -- you may have the building blocks of a successful claim:

California employers are seeking autistic new hires

Just like other workers with disabilities, autistic workers in California face the threat of being discriminated against by potential employers. However, some employers in California have begun to see the unique benefit of hiring workers suffering from this condition. Although every case of autism is different, certain people on the autism spectrum possess special skills that exceed those of nonautistic individuals.

What if you're asked illegal questions in an interview?

Sometimes you don't even have to get hired by a company before you start experiencing discrimination. Too many people in positions of hirng employees don't know what subjects should be off-limits in interviews. Others know, but don't care or can't help themselves.

Discrimination at work isn't ever acceptable

There isn't ever a good reason for an employer to discriminate against someone based on things like gender, marital status or other protected statuses. When an employee is subjected to this type of atrocious behavior, he or she might decide that he or she is going to take legal action. This might be difficult to prove, but we are here to help you figure out what direction to take your case.

Your employer can take steps to prevent workplace discrimination

If you love your job and wake up most days eager to arrive at your workplace, consider yourself one of the lucky ones in California. Many people say they are very dissatisfied with their current jobs, such as some who may have gone to college and earned degrees, then were forced into paid employment situations that have nothing to do with their academic backgrounds. Others are in the industries they want to be in but don't get along well with their bosses or co-workers.

When workplace discrimination leads to a wrongful termination

Wrongful terminations can happen for many reasons. For example, a worker could get unlawfully terminated in a way that violated his or her written or verbal contract, or in retaliation for reporting an environmental law violation. In some cases, it's easy to prove that wrongful termination occurred because there's a clear paper trail to support the terminated employee's claims. In other cases, it's a little more difficult to prove, for example in the case of discrimination.
