On behalf of The Rager Law Firm posted on November 30, 2018
In the state of California, employment discrimination is taken seriously. Workplace Discrimination is more than uncomfortable for the victim. Any form of discrimination is dehumanizing and can deeply affect your psychology which in turn affects your success at work. In 2018 there is no need to experience this kind of negativity in the workplace, yet it is still very prevalent.

If you or a loved one experience discrimination at work (DFEH), a file must be claimed through California’s Department of Employment and Housing. This claim must be filed within a year of the incident through a form entitled “intake form”. An investigator will call within 60 days to assess your claim, ask for specific facts and/or any recordings or documents specific to your situation. They will also issue copies of your complaint. Once the complaint has been filed it will be sent to the workplace. Despite this option being available to you from DFEH, due to the private matter of this situation or if you are in a position where you feel your safety is of concern (safety to keep your job or other forms) then you file a “right to sue” form.
A “Right to Sue” form means that you are filing a lawsuit for employment discrimination through an attorney. The investigation will then be taken care of by your attorney and team, and not DFEH. This kind of filing should also be done within a year of the incident. If you are looking for information about discrimination then you or a loved one must be experiencing this hostility and are deeply affected. Please know that you are not the only one and that you are doing the right thing for yourself as well as for others who will come after you and may feel the same way unless something is done about it.
