Know your rights with age discrimination

You may be going silver at the temples, but you are still at the top of your game. Your age and experience give you a perspective that provides an advantage over competitors or younger employees, but what if employers have biased beliefs about older workers? Some employers may believe older workers are not as sharp as younger workers, or may be slower and less likely to perform well in demanding situations. If you feel that you have been discriminated against on the job or in the California employment market due to your age, we at Anticouni & Associates fully understand your frustration.

Understanding religious discrimination and accommodations

California law requires that employers make reasonable accommodations for employees to fairly and equitably practice their faith. According to the Society of Human Resource Management, the California Workplace Religious Freedom Act of 2012 protects all religious creeds, observances, beliefs, dress and practices and requires employers to make an effort that does not fall under the qualification of "undue hardship."

Age discrimination in the workplace

Workers in California who are over the age of 40 need to be aware of age discrimination laws. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, these federal laws are in place to protect those who are discriminated in a variety of employment areas. These include hiring, termination, promotions, pay, benefits, job assignments and layoffs.

What are some examples of religious discrimination?

On this blog, we have covered some of the different types of discrimination, such as discrimination based upon an employee's age, gender or national origin. However, it is important to point that that people in California may also be subjected to unlawful religious discrimination. If you think that you have been treated in an abusive or unlawful manner because of your beliefs, it is critical to know your rights and speak out.

Is disability discrimination against the law?

People are aware of many different examples of illegal discrimination, whether it is based on an employee's race, gender, or age. However, there are other types of unlawful discrimination that disrupt the lives of workers in Santa Barbara, and across the whole state of California, that may receive less attention. For example, some people may not realize that it is illegal to discriminate against an employee because of their disability.

Taking a look at age-based discrimination

There are many different types of discrimination, some of which is based on an employee's national origin, while other cases involve an employee's gender. Unfortunately, in Santa Barbara, and other California cities, some employees and job applicants have suffered as a result of age discrimination. It is essential for employees and prospective employees to understand what constitutes unlawful age discrimination and take action if they believe it has occurred.

The emotional toll of discrimination

When people think of discrimination, a number of challenges may come to mind, such as the denial of job applications and financial problems brought on by being fired. At Anticouni & Associates, we are very familiar with the emotional problems that can arise for victims of discrimination in Santa Barbara, and in all of California's communities. To some, emotional challenges may not seem to be a very serious problem. However, they can be devastating for victims.

How can I spot sex-based discrimination?

Like racial discrimination, national origin discrimination, and other types of unlawful mistreatment, sex-based discrimination is prohibited in the workplace. Whether you are employed in Santa Barbara, or another California region, it is pivotal to pinpoint and properly address this illegal treatment as soon as possible. Sadly, many employees have had their daily lives and futures disrupted as a result of unlawful discrimination.
