Workers across the state of California are protected under a number and state and federal guidelines prohibiting employment discrimination. Promoting a general awareness of intolerance, as well as state laws and how they apply directly to employees, is incredibly important to combat issues like unlawful discrimination and wrongful termination in the workplace.
According to statistics provided by the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a little over 33 percent of workplace discrimination charges filed in the state of California last year were race related. Claims of disability discrimination also accounted for around 30 percent of all charges in the state, and accusations over religious discrimination against workers were on the rise from 2009. State figures did vary slightly from national statistics, and shed light on difficulties that thousands of California workers face every year.
