California Expands “National Origin” to Fight Discrimination Read more 

On July 1, 2018, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) will now restrict employers from:

  • Prohibiting the use of language, like instituting an “English-only” policy.
  • Discriminating against anyone based on their level of English proficiency, unless it is required to fulfill duties.
  • Discriminating against a person’s accent unless they can show it interferes with the employee to do his/her job.
