Workplace Discrimination

Workplace discrimination is a general term that essentially describes unfair treatment based on protected classes. The law prohibits discrimination in all of the following:

  • Job advertisements
  • Job applications, the screening process, and job interviews
  • Hiring, transferring, demoting, promoting, terminating, or separating employees
  • Working conditions, including type of job performed, assignments, and compensation
  • Participation is training, programs, organizations, etc.

In California, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protects individuals (including employees and prospecting employees) from discrimination based on the following characteristics: race and color; national origin and ancestry; religion; age (40 and up); disability (both mental and physical); sexual orientation; gender identity and expression; sex and gender (includes pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and other related conditions); medical conditions; genetic information; marital status; military or veteran status.

If you suffered workplace discrimination based on any of the protected characteristics mentioned above, you might have grounds to file an employment claim against your employer. If your unfair treatment escalated to termination, then you could have grounds to file a wrongful termination claim.

Workplace Pregnancy Discrimination

Unfortunately, pregnancy discrimination is very common in the workplace. Pregnancy discrimination is protected under the category of sex and gender discrimination. Pregnancy discrimination can look different for everyone. Some examples of pregnancy discrimination in the workplace include the following:

  • Getting demoted or fired as soon as your employer discovers your pregnancy
  • Being refused any time off for prenatal care appointments
  • Being refused any additional breaks for expressing breastmilk
  • Being refused pregnancy leave or family leave
  • Being fired after applying for leave

Given that your employer has five or more employees, you have certain protections, including the right to reasonable accommodations (e.g., less strenuous duties, a private room to express breastmilk, etc.) and the right to take time off work. An employer cannot refuse to hire, harass, terminate, or discriminate against you because of pregnancy. In addition, given that you have been working with your employer for at least a year, then you could be entitled to up to 12 weeks of leave.

Sexual Harassment

Some of the most common examples of sexual harassment include the following:

  • Staring at breasts or the body in general
  • Looking someone up and down
  • Making comments that insinuate things about someone’s body (making comments that are sexual)
  • Unwanted touching (patting, caressing, fondling, groping)
  • Violating personal space (getting too close to others)
  • Threatening with negative consequences if sexual advances are ignored or rejected
  • Unwanted/inappropriate sexual propositions
  • Making sexual jokes about someone
  • Inappropriate facial expressions or gestures
  • Offering rewards in exchange for sexual favors
  • Sexual assault, rape, forcing the victim to perform sexual acts

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination and could ultimately lead to negative work consequences, like demotion and termination, for instance. If you were wrongfully terminated after experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace, then you should explore your legal options immediately.

Wrongful Demotion

Demotions are only legal if they are directly related to things like work performance or changes in structure, for instance. If you were demoted from your position based on any of the personal characteristics protected by the FEHA, then your demotion was likely wrongful. If you were the victim of wrongful demotion, you could take action against your employer.

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination is essentially any termination that occurs based on an illegal reason. For instance, if you were terminated based on any protected characteristic, like your race, religion, sex, gender, etc., then your termination is likely an illegal termination. Unfortunately, wrongful terminations are not always clear, as employers can potentially manipulate the situation to make it seem like the termination is perfectly legal. If you suspect that your termination was wrongful, you should take action against your employer as soon as possible.

Pay Discrimination – Wage and Hour Claim

Pay discrimination, also known as compensation discrimination, occur when employees that perform a similar work do not receive similar pay based on protected characteristics, like race, origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, etc. Unfortunately, this means that the discriminated employee can be cheated out of fair wages. If you were the victim of pay discrimination, you could definitely take action against your employer.

What Are Your Options?

If you were subject to workplace discrimination during your time working with Hyatt Hotel or if you suffered wrongful termination, you definitely have options. First, it is important that you contact the state employment agency that enforces the FEHA – the Department of Fair Housing and Employment (DFEH). All employment claims in the state must go through this agency. The DFEH will investigate the situation, determine whether your employer violated any employment laws and potentially take action against your employer. You also have the option of filing a civil lawsuit against your employer; however, you will need to be granted the right to sue by the DFEH. Once you have been granted the right to sue, a Hyatt Hotel wrongful termination attorney can help you with the rest of the legal process – until you are fairly compensated for the unjust treatment that you suffered in the workplace. If your wrongful termination claim is successful, you could be compensated for lost wages, lost benefits, pain and suffering, punitive damages, and legal fees, for instance.
