Race Discrimination in Los Angeles


The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits harassment based on race. See Cal.Gov.Code. § 12940(j)(1). A working environment charged with ethnic or racial discrimination can also violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000e, et seq. An employer has a duty to prevent and remedy instances of racial harassment. Racial slurs may constitute harassment even if made by one member to another member of the same race. A supervisor that makes a single racial slur may render the employer liable for creating a hostile work environment.  A hostile environment may exist even if some of the hostility is directed at other workers.
