Color Discrimination in Los Angeles
Color discrimination can arise from racist misperceptions that lighter skin makes an employee more intelligent, reliable, or trustworthy than someone with darker skin. Discrimination based on skin color is prohibited by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. Discrimination based on color can even occur when an employer fires an employee over a coworker of the same race with lighter skin. Such discrimination is illegal under both California and federal law.
