Cohen, our Oakland employment lawyers are dedicated to helping individuals protect their right to a safe working environment. If you believe you may have been subjected to mistreatment due to your gender, race or other protected characteristic, contact our firm for a case evaluation.

Understanding Workplace Discrimination

Workplace discrimination can manifest in various forms, such as age discrimination, race discrimination, gender discrimination, and disability discrimination. These forms of discrimination often result in unequal opportunities, unfair treatment, and a hostile work environment. It is essential for every employee to be aware of their rights and the laws that protect them from such discriminatory practices.

An employee subjected to discrimination may experience the following: 

  • Disparity in Compensation and Benefits: If there is a noticeable disparity in pay or benefits between employees of different genders, races, ages, etc., performing the same roles with similar experience and qualifications, it may indicate discrimination. It’s important to note that such disparities can also occur in other areas, such as promotions and professional development opportunities.
  • Harassment by Superiors or Colleagues: Harassment is a form of discrimination that can take the form of offensive jokes, slurs, name-calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance.
  • Denial of Reasonable Workplace Accommodations: Refusal to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities or for religious practices can be a sign of discrimination. Such accommodations may include modifying work schedules, adjusting desk heights, installing computer screen magnifiers, etc.
