California’s state employment laws allow employees to have rights, and for their employers to have responsibilities. California’s laws give employees a sturdy base to stand on when they need to make a claim or file a lawsuit against their employer. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prevents employers with five or more employees and job applicants from being discriminated against because of a protected class. This means that an employer cannot discriminate against a person based on sex, gender, age, race, pregnancy, disability, or other protected class the law covers.
The California Family Rights Act is a state law that ensures employers who have 50 or more employees will provide leave for the birth of a child, and the parent will not have to fear their job will not be there when they return. Employers who have five or more workers have to give a sensible amount of time for up to four months due to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition. There are a multitude of laws in the state of California that prevent employees from being discriminated against and retaliated against.
Employers also do not always have the authority to terminate an employee, demote him or her, or to choose another job applicant if they are doing so for the wrong reasons. If that is the case, an employee can then take legal action against their employer. It is imperative that you discuss your case with experienced lawyers in the state of California to help decide the best course of action.
Both federal and state laws protect employees in Los Angeles and in the state of California. Federal employment laws apply to every person in the country, regardless of which state they reside in. These protections were created due to years of discrimination and harassment acts in the workplace. States, on the other hand, have their own freedom to pass individual state employment laws. California tends to be an employee-friendly state that takes the entire process very seriously. The following laws are federal laws that protect you as an employee in the city of Los Angeles.
