California Government Code Section 12940 FEHA discrimination lawyer

California Government Code Section 12940 prohibits harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and adverse employment actions based upon:
Race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, gender identification, sex, sexual orientation, age, military or veteran status, and genetic information.
As an employment discrimination lawyer California Government Code Section 12940 is the legal source behind many of the cases I represent employees in. Therefore, based thereupon, I pulled over and took a picture of the odometer in my van last night as it reached 12940!
