Race Discrimination

California’s Government Code Section addresses all issues related to discrimination at work place including discrimination based on an employee’s race, national origin or ethnicity. The code also addresses issues related to discrimination in housing. In general race is defined as a person’s ancestory or ethnic background. In short an employer cannot take an employee’s race or associations based on race into account when adversely affecting that employee’s employment. Case law has developed two theories of liability when issues of race discrimination have been raised. An employer can be liable if his/her actions result in “disparate treatment” of an employee based on race OR if the actions result in “disparate impact” affecting employee’s of certain race or ethnicity. Disparate impact and treatment analysis can also be sued to establish discrimination based on sex.We have litigated cases in San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange County as well as many other California counties.
