Common Examples Of Discrimination
The law prohibits employers from discriminating against employers based on their age, race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and disability. Discrimination may take many forms, including:
- Denial of benefits which are available to other employees
- Denial of equal pay
- Excluding employees from advanced training programs which are available to others
- Refusing to hire a worker based on a discriminatory reason
- Severe harassment which causes an employee to quit
Instances of discrimination may not always be instantly clear. An employer may attempt to state another reason for taking adverse action against an employee. However, if the underlying reason was based on discrimination, the employer may be held liable. Our attorneys will thoroughly review your allegations to determine if you have a viable claim based on the actions of your employer, including supervisors, human resources employees, and other coworkers.
