1. Employment discrimination is the unfair treatment of an employee or prospective employee based on a class or category that the person is a member of. Both federal and California laws prohibit discrimination, and it is illegal for employers to discriminate based on factors such as race, skin color, gender, national origin, age, religion, or disability. An employer can discriminate in many ways, and the discrimination does not even have to be intentional to be illegal. It can involve hiring, firing, promotions, wages, fringe benefits, and employee treatment. Two general types of discrimination include: 1. Disparate treatment. This occurs when an employer singles out a person or a group of people for unequal treatment for an illegal reason, such as refusing to promote a person because of his race or pressuring an employee to engage in a sexual act to keep his job. 2. Disparate impact. This involves an employer’s policy or practice that may not single out a person or group, but has the...

1. The laws governing discrimination in the workplace are based on both constitutional prohibitions, and on state and federal statutes. As a general rule, discrimination is defined as the practice of treating a group of people differently. The U.S. Supreme Court has established certain tests for determining whether disparate (different) treatment of a group is discriminatory and illegal. If the treatment is based on what the law refers to as a “suspect classification,” the disparate treatment will be subject to “strict scrutiny.”A suspect classification is some characteristic of the victim, typically immutable (one that cannot be changed, such as age, gender or race), that has no bearing on the person’s ability to perform his or her job. Under current Supreme Court rulings, there are four traits that are considered suspect classifications: race, national origin, religion and alienage (the status of being an alien). The courts have also identified what are known as “quasi-suspect classi...
