Discrimination in the Workplace

Unfortunately, discrimination continues to be a major problem in workplaces all over California. sThere are many different types of discrimination that employees could experience in the workplace. In general, discrimination is associated with some sort of mistreatment. Employees could suffer poor treatment, unequal opportunities, demotions, pay cuts, schedule changes, unwanted assignments, and terminations, for example. If you suffered any type of workplace discrimination during your time working with Amazon, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible to learn more about what you should do.

Your Rights in the Workplace

You have rights as an employee. These rights are established by both federal laws and state laws. On the federal level, for instance, you and all other employees are protected by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination based on religion, origin, color, race, and sex, for example. In California, you and all other employees are protected by the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), which prohibits discrimination based on color, race, origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression/identity, genetic information, medical condition, military/veteran status, and marital status, for example. If these laws are violated, your rights are infringed, and you are subject to employment discrimination, do not hesitate to contact our Amazon discrimination experts at California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group at your earliest convenience.

The Options Available to You

After being subjected to any form of employment discrimination during your time working with Amazon, you must take action. As a victimized employee, you have the right to pursue a charge through either a federal employment agency or a state employment agency. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal employment agency that oversees/enforces all federal employment laws. In the state of California, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is a state employment agency that also enforces and oversees all employment laws, albeit on the state level. These agencies investigate your claim and take action against the employer if found necessary. If you would like to learn more about the EEOC, the DFEH, and your right to take action through these agencies, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.

About the Right to Sue Amazon

Undeniably, you have the right to take action against your employer through the EEOC and the DFEH. However, you might also be concerned about the possibility of filing a civil lawsuit against your employer. Do you have the right to sue Amazon? Can you file a civil lawsuit against your employer? If you can file a lawsuit directly against your employer, what is the process of doing so? Unfortunately, you do not have the right to just sue Amazon as soon as you experience employment discrimination. Rather, you must first pursue a charge through the EEOC or DFEH – this allows the employment agencies to investigate the claim and take action against the employer if found necessary. Although you cannot automatically pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer, you can receive the right to sue. To receive the right to sue from the EEOC or DFEH, the employment agency must conclude their investigation into your claim. You could also directly request to right to sue from the employment agencies. As soon as you are granted the right to sue, you can pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer. If you would like to learn more about your right to sue Amazon for employment discrimination, contact our law firm today.

Understanding the Deadlines Relevant to Your Claim

All claims – including employment discrimination claims – are subject to strict deadlines. Although most claims are only subject to one timeline, employment claims are different. There are a number of deadlines that might apply to your claim depending on the specific details of your claim and the action that you decide to pursue. How long do you have to take action against your employer? Consider the following points:

  • If you pursue a charge through the EEOC, you will have 300 days to file your claim (180 days if you are filing your claim outside of California).
  • If you want to pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer after filing a charge with the EEOC, you will have 90 days to file your civil lawsuit after receiving the right to sue.
  • If you pursue a charge through the DFEH, you will have 1 year to file your claim.
  • If you want to pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer after filing a charge with the DFEH, you will have 1 year to file your civil lawsuit after receiving the right to sue.

Why are these deadlines so important? Unfortunately, if you fail to file your claim within the appropriate timeline, you could lose your right to take action against your employer.
