What Is Workplace Discrimination?
Workplace discrimination occurs when a job applicant or employee is subjected to unfair treatment because of a factor like their race, skin color, sex, gender, national origin, religion, disability, pregnancy or age. It can happen at any point in an employment relationship, and it can manifest as a refusal to hire, denial of training, a failure to promote, harassment, unfairness in compensation or disciplinary matters, or other inequitable treatment.
It is illegal when a potential or current employer discriminates against you because you are a member of a protected class. A variety of federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act all offer legal protections against discrimination in the workplace.
