If you have been denied job opportunity, have been fired from a job, or have been harassed on the job on the basis of age, sex, race, gender, religion, national origin, or disability, you may be a victim or employee discrimination. Federal and State law prohibit employers from unfairly discriminating against individuals for any of the above reasons and gives qualified employees the right to maintain their job positions.
Forms of discrimination include bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, compensation, and harassment. According to the EEOC, or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, all employers in the United States are not allowed to discriminate against you for any of the following reasons:
- Transfers, layoffs, promotions, or recalls
- Use of company’s facilities
- Fringe benefits
- Hiring or firing
- Job advertisements
- Pay, disability leave and retirement plans
- Compensation, classification, and assignment of employees
- Apprenticeship and training programs
In order to be “illegally” discriminatory, an employer has to be in violation of certain State or Federal laws or statutes, or even the regulatory and constitutional provisions.
