What Exactly is Employment Discrimination?
Put simply, employment discrimination refers to a situation in which one worker is treated different than another worker, even though both workers are similarly qualified. Protects characteristics that workers cannot be treated different for include their sex, gender, religion, age (if more than 40 years old), race, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, and gender identity / expression.
Discrimination can happen during the hiring or firing process, when deciding promotions or demotions, when raises and / or benefits are allocated, when work and projects are assigned, and during negotiations for leaves of absences. Note that the discrimination does not have to be deliberate – if a seemingly neutral policy has a disproportionate impact on one particular group, it can quality as discrimination.
What’s the Purpose of Taking Action Against Employment Discrimination?
Many people who have been the victim of employment discrimination wonder if it is even worth taking action for. There are actually several reasons to work with an employment law attorney and file a lawsuit. First, it sends a message to your employer their actions are not okay and ill not be tolerated.
Second, legal action can reverse any adverse job actions you have endured. As an example, if you had your hours cut, you may be able to get them reinstated. If you were mistreated, you may be eligible to receive compensation for that behavior.
