Discrimination in the Workplace

Discrimination is treatment or consideration based on class or category, rather than on an individual's merits. Both federal and state laws prohibit discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, physical disability, or age.

Discriminatory practices include bias at the time of interviewing or hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, compensation, and various forms of harassment. It also is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against any individual for opposing or for filing a discrimination charge, or for testifying, assisting or participating in an investigation, a proceeding, or a hearing. (Letters protesting against different forms of discrimination are available on this site.)
