While employers are free to hire and fire, to assign work and to discipline employees, the law does not allow them to discriminate against people because of certain qualities, called ” protected classifications.” These include race, age, sex, national origin, religious affiliation, marital status, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, transgenderism and (in San Francisco) height and/or weight (California Government Code Section 12940).
Discrimination is often shown by conduct and statements such as the denial of a job, wrongful termination of employment, or a change in the terms or conditions of employment (wages, hours, bonuses and job assignments). Only employers/companies can be sued for discrimination, even if a supervisor or manager was the one who discriminated against someone.
