Age is just a number -- unless you're a judge in California

These days, it's more common than ever to hear the phrase, "Age is just a number!" People are living longer -- and healthier -- than ever before. Their work lives are also extended. Nobody thinks much of it anymore when someone -- particularly a well-educated professional -- is working well into their "golden years."

Can workers be discriminated against for sexual orientation?

When you've read over a job vacancy or application before, you've likely seen a listing of different classes of people that are protected from discrimination under federal laws. They strictly prohibit a worker from being treated differently from others solely based on their age, race, national origin, disability or pregnancy status or religion. Sexual orientation isn't included on this list though.

What are the different forms of pregnancy discrimination?

Is it legal to discriminate against employees based on their DNA?

Imagine you reported to a job interview, and your future boss asked you to spit into a cup. You don't have any strands of DNA that could produce a red hiring flag, so you get the job.

Were you fired for being gay in California?

Many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees get the feeling in the workplace that their employer or co-workers treat them differently because of their sexual orientation. This can be a very frustrating and upsetting experience and one that you might feel powerless to do anything about.

What evidence can help prove employment discrimination?

Despite the many federal and state laws prohibiting employment discrimination, it still occurs at an alarming rate in California and other states. It is difficult in many cases to understand why employment discrimination still happens in this age of tolerance and acceptance. Some victims may even have difficulty determining if they are suffering discrimination or just imagining things.
