Disability Discrimination

In California, an individual is classified as a disabled person if they have one or more physical or mental impairments that significantly limit their daily life activities such as walking, speaking, seeing, reading, hearing, etc. Furthermore, the disability must be permanent or untreatable. State and federal laws protect disabled workers. However, disability discrimination still occurs in the workplace and to potential job seekers.

Pregnancy Discrimination

Have you experienced discrimination at work while being pregnant? The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a pregnant worker. This means, if you’re pregnant, your employee cannot harass, fire, or demote you in your workplace under any circumstances. Furthermore, under the California Pregnancy Disability Leave Law, all employers residing in California should provide their pregnant employees with up to four months of pregnancy leave.

The Law Offices of Jerome A. Clay have been protecting the rights of pregnant employees across California. If you think you’ve been mistreated or discriminated against due to your pregnancy, contact us! We can provide all the needed legal advice and representation to protect your rights.

Discrimination based on age, gender, race, or religion

In California, employees are protected from discrimination and harassment in the workplace based on protected traits. Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), protected traits include ancestry/creed, age, color, disability, gender expression, genetics, gender, gender identity, marital status, military or veteran status, nationality, race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation. Under FEHA, an employer cannot mistreat, harass, or discriminate an employee or prospective employee under any circumstances due to their protected traits.

Did you find that you were mistreated or discriminated against because of your age, race, or gender? Examples of age, gender, race, or religious discrimination include employers not hiring or terminating people of a specific age, race, or gender, not paying the same wages and benefits because they belong to a different age, gender, race or religious group, not giving the same opportunities to workers of varying age, gender, race or religious group, and many more.

If you’ve faced age, gender, race, or religious discrimination in the workplace—speak with Attorney Jerome A. Clay.  At, The Law Office of Jerome A. Clay, we have employment discrimination attorneys with ten years of experience with a successful record of recoveries and compensation for the wronged employees.
