What Is Discrimination?

Last updated 1 year ago

Believe it or not, most people discriminate on a daily basis when making decisions about people and products. However, if your employer illegally discriminates against you, they may face serious legal consequences—and you may be entitled to receive financial compensation.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating based on one’s race, religion, ethnicity, sex, or age. This video also explains that there are state and municipal laws that may apply as well.

If you believe that you have been the target of workplace discrimination, it is important to speak with an attorney who focuses on this area of law. Contact the Advocacy Center for Employment Law of San Jose by calling (888) 703-2911.
