A handful of Federal laws prohibit discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender or disability. Depending upon your geographical area and type of employer, additional laws at the state and local level in California may further protect you from discrimination based on factors such as sexual orientation, political affiliation, or marital status.
Even in California, which is an at-will employment state, an employee may not be terminated for an illegal reason. Examples of illegal reasons include discrimination against anyone who is affected by the following:
• Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
• The American with Disabilities Act
• The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
• The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)
