Discrimination At Work. What Is It?

Employees in all different industries have endured workplace discrimination for decades. And today, despite the prohibition against acts of discrimination under both federal and state law, it still happens.

But what exactly classifies as discrimination at work?

Workplace Discrimination: In A Nutshell

Basically, your employer is prohibited by law from treating you differently or unfairly because of:

  • Your race
  • Your national origin
  • Your age
  • Your sex
  • Your religion
  • Your disability
  • Your sexual orientation

Your employer can’t fire, penalize, demote or deny you pay or benefits based on your identification with any of the above. Your employer also can’t fire, penalize, demote or reprimand you for challenging the way it is treating people who fall into any of the above categories. If they have — we can help.
