Top-Rated Los Angeles Discrimination Attorneys
What is Employment Discrimination?
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines discrimination as unequal treatment of an individual because of the individual’s group, class, or category rather than on its merit.
An individual can face two types of discrimination: indirect discrimination/disparate impact and direct discrimination/disparate treatment. Indirect discrimination/disparate impact occurs when a policy that applies to all individuals negatively impacts a group of individuals who share a protected characteristic. Direct discrimination/disparate treatment occurs when an individual actively mistreats another individual because of its protected characteristic.
