Who is protected against employment discrimination?

Employment discrimination sadly occurs often in the United States. From an employer who passes over a potential hire due to their old age to an employer who refuses to hire people who appear Mexican, there are extremely discriminatory tactics that are used regularly.

Employment discrimination includes:

  • Unfair treatment due to your color, race, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age (40 or older), genetic information and other protected factors
  • Harassment from co-workers, employers or others in the workplace due to your disability, race, age, skin color, pregnancy and other protected factors
  • Retaliation against you due to complaining about job discrimination or because of you assisting with an investigation or lawsuit to do with discrimination
  • The denial of reasonable changes in the workplace that you need because of a disability or your religious beliefs
  • Improper questioning about your medical data or genetic information

Laws created by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) protect you against employment discrimination in the above cases. The EEOC does what it can to protect workers against discrimination due to the above factors and can also help against discrimination in schools, which is something to keep in mind.

No person who has to work to support themselves should have to put up with employment discrimination. It is unfair and disruptive to their lives.

If you are struggling with workplace discrimination or have not been hired as a result of discrimination, you could have a strong case against the employer. Your legal rights are protected, so it's important to speak out when possible and to make a case to stop discrimination.
