Discrimination for any reason is unfair, but when the discrimination is prohibited under California law, you can take action to protect yourself. California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits discrimination based on a variety of characteristics, including Gender. A covered employer may not discriminate against someone by
- Refusing to hire, or
- Otherwise discriminating against a person simply because of the person’s gender.
Moreover, gender discrimination includes discrimination based on pregnancy.
What should you do if you think you were discriminated against because of your gender?
- Report any discrimination to the human resources department at your work. This ensures that your employer is on notice about the discrimination and should take proper steps to stop all discrimination;
- Note down instances of discrimination or comments regarding your gender;
