Under California Law, discrimination refers to actions taken against a person because that person has certain protected traits, characteristics or belongs to a certain protected class of society.
To have grounds for a discrimination lawsuit in California, the actions taken have to be targeted toward a specific individual and be different than the treatment of the rest of the group.
Workplace discrimination comes in many forms. It can be company policies that disproportionately affect workers with certain protected characteristics or an environment that negatively impacts people with protected traits. Workplace discrimination can also be differences in pay, promotions or opportunities for people in different classes.
