WHAT IS MARITAL STATUS DISCRIMINATION?
Marital status discrimination is when an employer makes job-related decisions based on a person's marital status or perceived marital status. Marital status discrimination is against the law in California. Marital status includes whether a person is:
- Currently married
- Not married
Marital status also includes information about whether a person's marriage has been dissolved or annulled and any other status related to one's marriage.
Marital status is a protected category under the law and employees are prohibited from making job-related decisions based on an employee or applicant's marital status.
