Advancing in a career is not always easy. It takes time, patience, education and skill. Many California residents spend the better part of their adult lives trying to get to where they want to be professionally. When something gets in the way of this hard work it can be very disappointing.
When discrimination is to blame for destruction in a person’s career, that person may have the right to take legal action. Under California law it is illegal to discriminate against someone in the workplace. This discrimination can be based on age, race, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, marriage status, national origin and other similar factors.
When employees face this type of discrimination it is important for them to know how to react. In legal suit, they may be able to obtain compensation for any losses they have suffered because of the discrimination. While the suit cannot repair the damage done to people’s careers, it can help compensate them for the economic losses they have suffered.
