No one wants to deal with discrimination at work. It's hurtful emotionally, and it can be harmful to their career prospects. It's nearly impossible to get ahead in a workplace where others are constantly putting you down.

Employment discrimination is against the law in America. Interestingly, people are not only protected when they are already employed. In fact, you are protected against discrimination during the hiring process as well.

Get to know Title VII

Title VII, fully known as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, makes it illegal for employers with 15 or more employees to discriminate against people based on religion, gender, race or national origin. The actions the employer cannot take based on national origin, race, gender or religion include:

  • Refusing to hire the person
  • Firing the employee
  • Denying training to an employee
  • Disciplining an employee
  • Demoting or paying less to an employee
  • Harassing an employee
  • Failing to promote an employee

It is important to speak up if you believe that you have been discriminated against through one of these actions. It may not be easy to prove, but if you have text messages, emails or other documentation that proves that the employer was discriminating against you, it will help your case immensely.

You have a right to work in an environment where you are treated fairly and with respect. If you are treated badly due to one of the above differences, like race or gender, you should reach out to your attorney for help filing a claim against your employer for employment discrimination in the workplace.
