California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Thank you again very much for your reply.You are always free to write upper management and complain to them of the unfair hiring practices you encountered. Beyond this, however, the purpose of my initial answer was to explain why there would be no basis to take legal action unless you felt that you had facts suggesting discriminatory (as defined above) intent. There is no state or federal agency that receives complaints for generally 'unfair' hiring practices because such practices are not illegal or regulated.If you believe that discriminatory motives were at play, you could file a formal complaint of discrimination with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing. For information on how to bring a claim through California's DFEH, visit this link: http://www.dfeh.ca.gov/Complaints.htm For information on how to bring a claim through the EEOC, visit this link: http://www.eeoc.gov/employees/charge.cfm Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further concerns and I will do everything I can to address them.Very kindest regards.
