As is only right, racial discrimination in the workplace is illegal under both California state and federal laws. It is unlawful to use features such as skin color, facial hair, or other characteristics which can generally be associated with a particular race when making decisions about employment, including promotions, pay increases, and opportunities to advance a career. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects you against discrimination on the grounds of your skin color, or other racial characteristics such as facial features, eyes, hair, and bone structure.
