Your Rights Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act

Fortunately, military service members and veterans are afforded several protections from employment discrimination under the FEHA. Whether you are a member or veteran of the United States Armed Forces, United States Armed Forces Reserve, the United States National Guard, or the California National Guard, or even someone who associates with a member of any of the aforementioned, you are protected from workplace discrimination or maltreatment due to your status as a military member or someone associated with one. It’s worth noting that federal law (the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act) also protects employees from discrimination based on their military service.

Examples of Military Discrimination

Unfortunately, there are several ways in which employers can mistreat and discriminate against military members. Some common examples of military discrimination in the workplace are as follows:

  • Refusing to hire certain employees due to military or veteran status
  • Refusing to promote certain employees based on military or veteran status
  • Demoting employees due to military or veteran status
  • Harassing employees due to military or veteran status
  • Refusing to re-employ an employee due to a hiatus where they served in the military

If you’ve been subjected to one or more of the aforementioned, or any other type of discriminatory behavior, our firm is here to help.

Filing Your Discrimination Claim

If you are a victim of discrimination based on your military service, you can file your discrimination claim with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Our firm can listen to your story, assess whether you have a valid claim, and, from there, file your claim and present supporting evidence in an effort to get you the compensation and justice you deserve.

As long as we are successful in proving discrimination, you should be compensated for the damages you’ve incurred as a result of the discrimination, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, and more.
