Employment Discrimination

Discrimination is illegal

Life is good at your job. You enjoy the work. It challenges you and you are learning new skills. You enjoy the people, too. Until one day your supervisor decides to give a plum assignment to a younger co-worker, even though your performance appraisals have been exemplary. You begin to think you are overreacting, until the situation repeats itself. You see a pattern forming.

"Is this discrimination?" you ask yourself.

It is illegal for an employer to terminate or discriminate against an employee on the basis of—

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy

It is illegal for an employer to consider these characteristics when deciding on:

  • Promotions
  • Job assignments
  • Termination
  • Wages

It is illegal for an employer to terminate an employee—

  • For refusing to break a law
  • In retaliation for filing a discrimination or safety claim
  • For taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Without following its own stated procedure or policy
  • For reasons not contained in the employment contract, if one exists

When an advance is not welcome

Unwelcome sexual advances, conduct, or other physical or verbal acts of a sexual nature in the workplace constitute sexual harassment.  Your employer may be liable for such behavior. This includes an offer of job-related advantages in exchange for sex.
