Discrimination in the Workplace
Workplace discrimination can take on many forms, including unfair treatment of employees or prospective employees on the basis of race, gender, disability, religion, age or national origin. Although there are state and federal laws in place to protect employees from this type of shameless behavior, discrimination still occurs in work environments across the state and country.
What Are Some Examples of Discrimination in the Workplace?
A few examples of discrimination in the workplace are:
- Being refused the job;
- Being dismissed or given less shifts;
- Being denied training opportunities, transfers and promotions;
- Being paid less than someone with the same job who has the same experience and qualifications;
- Being excluded or isolated by coworkers;
- Having information you need to do your job deliberately withheld;
- Being assigned unreasonable tasks;
- Being subjected to taunts or abuse that reference the protected attribute.
What Are the 7 Types of Discrimination?
If you’re experiencing workplace discrimination or retaliation for opposing it, there’s no reason for you to suffer. There are many federal, state and local laws that protect your rights.
Various federal and state laws protect employees who have been discriminated against on the basis of a number of characteristics, including sex/gender, age, race, and color. The following are some forms of discrimination that are unlawful under state and/or federal law:
- Gender discrimination: Gender discrimination is illegal, and there are federal, state and local laws designed to protect you. These laws prohibit discrimination based on sex with respect to hiring, compensation, promotion, treatment on the job, and termination.
- Race discrimination: Federal, state and local laws prohibit an employer from discriminating against an employee based on their race. These laws protect employees from being treated less favorably, receiving fewer opportunities, and more—based on race.
- National origin discrimination: The Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as state and local laws, make it illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of their national origin.
- Age discrimination: The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits the mistreatment of workers age 40 and over because of their age.
- Disability discrimination: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and state and local laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in all employment practices.
- Pregnancy discrimination: Federal law, state laws and many local laws prohibit discrimination based on pregnancy for most employees. Similarly, these laws protect you if your employer denies your maternity leave or refuses to hire you because of your pregnancy.
- Religious discrimination: Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of their religion. Employers are also required to provide reasonable accommodations for their employees’ religious practices and beliefs.
Sadly, it is common for employees to experience workplace discrimination during the hiring process, discipline, promotions, demotions and terminations. Many times, these unlawful acts are masked as “legitimate” actions, but they never are.

What Are Compensatory Damages in Employment Discrimination Cases?
Compensatory damages pay victims for financial losses caused by workplace discrimination (such as costs associated with looking for a job or medical expenses) and compensate them for emotional harm.
