Discrimination law deals with the unfair treatment of an employee due to a specific protected characteristic, such as: age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, pregnancy, national origin, race, color, religion or military status. Unfair treatment in the workplace may implicate anti-discrimination laws like the Fair Employment and Housing Act of California (FEHA) or Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964. In addition to Discrimination, workplace laws also protect employees from being harassed or retaliated against due to these same protected characteristics, such as sexual harassment, disability harassment, disability discrimination or disability retaliation for exercising a medical leave of absence.

Specifically, Disability Discrimination laws in California require an employer to take affirmative steps by entering into an interactive process with an employee to determine any reasonable accommodations that will permit the employee to continue employment while he/she recovers from a disability. In California, a disability is protected from discrimination, harassment or retaliation, and most disabilities that limit a major life activity qualify as a covered disability.
