Employees should be aware that federal and state laws are enacted to protect employees from unjust or inhumane treatments in the work place. This protection covers all stages of the work relationship from hiring, employment benefits and other conditions of work and even post-employment. In Los Angeles, in particular, employers are prohibited from discriminating against their employees on account of their age, race, sex, color, nationality, religion and disability, among others. If you are a prospective employee or applicant and you are not given a fair chance during your interview due to any form of discrimination, you have a right to claim damages against your employer although you are technically not an employee of the unjust employer mentioned. Also, if you are hired but you are subsequently harassed or discriminated against at work and you are not provided with the correct wage and other benefits, you can seek compensation for your back wages and other damages against your erring employer. Furthermore, during your cessation from work, if you are either wrongfully terminated by your employer against public policy or forced to resign due to hostile work environment, you have a right to be reinstated to your position and, in any event, remunerated for all your damages and losses as a result of your illegal discharge.
