Struggling with Discrimination in the Workplace?
Understand Your Rights
Workplace discrimination in any capacity is prohibited by federal law.
Federal Equal Employment Opportunity laws are designed to protect employees
from wrongful discrimination by employers and coworkers. Employees who
have been unfairly discriminated against are allowed to file a lawsuit
against their perpetrators.
Discrimination comes in all forms, including:
All individuals deserve to be treated fairly and with respect, regardless
of their differences. Employers cannot encourage discriminatory practices
in any manner, including in recruitment, hiring and firing, and pay benefits.
Likewise, all employees are entitled to a safe work environment, and this
includes an atmosphere that does not tolerate sexual harassment and employer
retaliation for whistleblowing.
