The law prohibits adverse or unfair treatment in your employment on the basis of your race, national origin, gender, age, religion, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation. While the law on this point is clear and direct, discrimination and harassment are unfortunately commonplace at far too many workplaces.
Workplace discrimination and harassment can take many forms. You may have been denied an assignment or promotion based on an employer’s perception of “appropriate” gender roles. Your employment may have been terminated by an employer who thought you were too old to do your job. You may have been unfairly disciplined following an injury or illness, or on the basis of your disability. You may be paid less than coworkers of a different race, or different gender. Perhaps you have been subjected to offensive racial slurs, or inappropriate sexual comments. The list of potential violations is unfortunately a long one.
