Civil Rights Laws
As noted above, there are many important laws that guarantee certain civil rights to individuals.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964
Famously, the Civil Rights Act prohibited discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in the workplace, public accommodations, public facilities, and agencies receiving federal funds, and strengthened prohibitions on school segregation and discrimination in voter registration.
California Civil Rights Laws
The Unruh Civil Rights Act is a piece of California legislation that specifically outlaws discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, or sexual orientation. This law applies to all businesses in California, including hotels and motels, restaurants, theaters, hospitals, barber and beauty shops, housing accommodations, and retail establishments.
The Ralph Civil Rights Act (California Civil Code Section 51.7) forbids acts of violence, because of (for example) your race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, political party, or your part in a labor dispute.
The Bane Civil Rights Act (California Civil Code Section 52.1) forbids anyone from interfering by force or by threat of violence with your federal or state constitutional or statutory rights.
If you feel you have been denied your Civil Rights for any reason, please contact our civil rights attorneys for a free and confidential consultation. At Rastegar Law Group, there is no fee unless and until we obtain a recovery for you.
