Employment Discrimination: Unfair And Unacceptable
Nobody should face disadvantages in the workplace as a result of traits they can’t change (or shouldn’t have to change). Illegal employment discrimination is a serious problem. It undermines the fundamental values our country stands for — including equal opportunity and a fair shake in life.
Fortunately, we live in a society where the law does not stand for discrimination in the workplace. You have the right to freedom from unfair treatment in your job on the basis of your:
- National origin
- Sex or gender identity
- Sexual orientation
- Age (over 40)
- Marital status
- Genetic information
- Military or veteran status
What Does Discrimination Look Like?
Unlawful discrimination includes much more than just blatant unfair treatment. It also encompasses more subtle conduct such as persistent sexual harassment or jokes that create a hostile work environment.
Fundamentally, discrimination occurs whenever you are treated differently — on the basis of one of the grounds mentioned above — in terms of job duties, expectations, advancement opportunities and benefits.
Discrimination can take place at any stage of employment, from hiring to firing and everything in between.
