Employment Discrimination

Unfortunately discrimination in the workplace is alive and well even in the 21st century. Many times workplace discrimination today exists in more subtle forms, although it is just as harmful. When your employer discriminates against you based on your race, gender, age, religion, national origin, or disability, your employer is violating Federal and State laws.

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 it is against the law for employers to discriminate against their employees. These laws protect employees who are discriminated against based on five categories: Race, Color, Religion, Sex and National Origin.

Discrimination can consist of any act that alters the condition of your employment from failing to hire, refusing to promote, or firing. It is also unlawful for your employer to discriminate against you with respect to your compensation, benefits, promotions, or any other substantial terms or conditions of your job. It is a violation of the law for your employer to retaliate against you for making a complaint about discrimination or to participate in an investigation about someone else’s complaint about discrimination.

Remember, however, for your employer to violate Title VII the discriminatory treatment must be based on your race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
