Hello and thank you for entrusting me to answer your question. I am very sorry to hear about your employment situation.

Harassment and discrimination on the basis of one's religion, ethnicity and gender is aboslutely illegal under state and federal law, and what you have described certainly may constitute illegal harassment and discrimination.

An individual who believes he or she has been the subject of unlawful discrimination or harassment and wishes to file a lawsuit must first file a formal complaint of discrimination with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Either the EEOC or the DFEH will issue an authorization to sue after they investigate the claim. A claimant need to file with both agencies. Finally, if an individual in your circumstance decides to sue, they must not miss their deadline. Under federal law in California, a claimant has 300 days from an act of discrimination to file a complaint.

For information on how to bring a claim through California's DFEH, visit this link: For information on how to bring a claim through the EEOC, visit this link:
