Anti-harassment and Anti-discrimination Policies
California labor law requires employers to take certain steps to prevent and correct discriminatory and harassing behavior in the workplace. On April 1, 2016, new anti-discriminatory and anti-harassment rules took effect, requiring employers who hire 5 or more employees to create a written policy with specific details such as:
- An enumeration of the protected categories, namely: age, race, color, religious creed, physical and mental disability, marital status, sex, gender, military and veteran status, among others.
- Clear statement that the policy covers co-workers, supervisors, managers, and third parties who interact with the employee
- Statements that the employer will maintain confidentiality, not retaliate against the reporting employee, and will conduct fair, complete, and timely investigation upon receiving a complaint
The new rules also require the employer to disseminate its discrimination policies to all current and future employees. When at least 10% of the workers speak a language other than English, the employer as well is required to provide translations of the anti-discrimination and harassment policies in alternative languages.
Discrimination can take on various forms in the workplace. Not all cases are alike and the trained eyes of an experienced discrimination or harassment attorney are often necessary for employees to determine whether they have a right to complain against management or their employer.
If you, or a friend or family member, are being subjected to unfair treatment at work due to some condition such as pregnancy, illness, disability, or other condition, it’s important to discuss your situation immediately with an attorney.
