Age, Race, Gender Discrimination Cases
Free Consult with a Hollister Employment Lawyer
Do you believe you were discriminated against because of your age, race
or gender? Federal and state laws such as the California Fair Employment
and Housing Act, Equal Pay Act of 1963, Age Discrimination in Employment
Act of 1967, Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, and Civil Rights Act
of 1964 prohibit employers from discriminating employees based on any
of these characteristics.
Examples of age, race and gender discrimination include:
- Failing to hire or promote members of these groups.
- Terminating members due to their age, race, or gender.
- Not paying members of these groups the same wages as other employees.
- Not giving members of these groups the same opportunities to advance.
- Not allowing members of these groups access to the same services or benefits
afforded to other employees.

Definitions of Workplace Discrimination
The law clearly outlines elements of age, race, and gender discrimination.
Because it may be difficult to prove discrimination occurred in some cases,
it is important that you keep records and documents detailing the behavior
and acts. The more evidence you have, the stronger you case becomes.
The definitions of workplace discrimination are as follows:
Age discrimination: Usually involves older employees. If you have been shut out from a promotion
or replaced by a younger, less experienced employee (who is paid less
and whose health insurance costs are less), you may be the victim of age
Race discrimination: Usually involves national origin. If you have been treated unfairly because
of physical characteristics, language, culture or ancestry, you may be
the victim of racial discrimination. Certain questions on an application
can reveal bias as well as refusing to promote someone because of their race.
Gender discrimination: Usually involves women. If you were not paid the same wages for the same
position or for performing the same tasks as men, you could be a victim
of gender discrimination. Other examples of gender discrimination include
not being offered executive positions or not being given the same advancement
opportunities as your male co-workers, despite having equivalent credentials.
Bill Marder Only Requires Payment If You Recover Money
If you have an age/race/gender discrimination case, you will need to file
your lawsuit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission within the
proper statute of limitations. Taking action can often stop these discriminating
and harassing behaviors from reoccurring. Because employment lawsuits
can be complicated, make sure you have an experienced lawyer by your side
to help guide you and protect you from any employer retaliation. To make
legal representation more accessible for clients, Bill Marder only requires
payment for legal services and costs if he recovers compensation on your behalf.
