California law provides that it is an unlawful employment practice for an employer, because of the race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, or sexual orientation of any person, to refuse to hire or employ the person or to refuse to select the person for a training program leading to employment, or to bar or to discharge the person from employment or from a training program leading to employment, or to discriminate against the person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment.

This essentially means that it is illegal to discriminate against anyone, if the basis is their race, religion, color, national origin, or any other factor as stated above.
Race is generally defined as a person's ancestry or ethnic characteristics. Employment race discrimination in the workplace based on association with people of a particular race is also prohibited.
