Understand Your Rights in Discrimination
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.

Discrimination in the Workplace
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.
