Marital Status

Most California employers are prohibited from discriminating against or harassing employees based on their marital status, or retaliating against employees who complain about marital status discrimination or harassment. Marital status includes marriage, non-marriage, divorce or dissolution, separation, widowhood, annulment, or any other marital state. Most employers may not make employment decisions such as hiring, training, termination, promotion, or compensation based on one’s marital status. For example, employers may not refuse to hire unwed mothers, decline to promote single people, or grant maternity leave only to married employees.
