What is considered workplace discrimination?
- Under federal law, workplace discrimination occurs when you are treated differently at work due to your sex, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, age (40 and older), or citizenship status. When an employer demonstrates discriminatory intent in hiring, promoting, and disciplining workers based on their status as members of a protected class or category, affected workers may have grounds for a claim. A local employment attorney can explain how workplace discrimination could apply to your situation.
