California Fair Pay Law May Soon Protect Employees From Racial Discrimination

Last October, the California Senate unanimously passed the California Fair Pay Bill - one of the most protective equal pay laws in the country.

Laws Against Racial Profiling in California: Common Questions

In an important step toward upholding civil liberties of Californians, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a new racial profiling bill last October that seeks to eradicate racial bias across the state. While many people think we are living in a post-racial era, recent news headlines regarding the Black Lives Matter movement, and EEOC charge statistics show race discrimination is still a major problem. This is why the bill that Gov. Brown signed into law is such a crucial piece to battling race discrimination in California and beyond.

National Origin Discrimination vs. Race Discrimination: What's the Difference?

Are you thinking about suing your employer for race discrimination? While this type of unlawful employer behavior is the most common in the United States according to current EEOC charge statistics, you may want to reassess your situation before contacting an employment attorney. This is because, while race and national origin often overlap, many employees mistake race discrimination for national origin discrimination. And although they may sound the same, California and federal employment laws address each protected class separately. This common mistake is easy to make since your race is usually connected to your national origin. So, how do you know if you're being subjected to workplace discrimination due to your race, or if it's related to your national origin?
