Forms of Workplace Discrimination
Discrimination & Harrassment
It is illegal for your employer to discriminate against you because of your membership in a protected class: Race, Color, National Origin, Sex (including, Pregnancy), or Religion; Age (40+); Disability (physical or mental); Genetics (including family medical history); and Military or Veteran status. Discrimination may take various forms, including failure to hire, failure to promote (glass ceiling), and failing to pay equal pay for equal work. Further, you may not be selected for termination over another employee outside your protected class absent otherwise legitimate reasons.
