Job discrimination is a form of discrimination that occurs in the workplace. It is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees or job applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information.
There are a number of ways that job discrimination can occur. For example, an employer may discriminate against an employee by:
Hiring someone of a different race or ethnicity for the same job.
Firing someone because of their religion.
Paying someone less money because of their sex.
Refusing to hire someone because they are disabled.
Asking an employee about their genetic information.
Job discrimination can have a devastating impact on employees. It can lead to lost wages, job loss, and emotional distress. If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work, you should contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.
Here are some things you can do if you believe you have been discriminated against at work:
Keep a record of the discrimination. This includes writing down what happened, when it happened, and who was involved.
Talk to your employer. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can try to talk to your employer about the discrimination.
File a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is the federal agency that enforces the anti-discrimination laws.
File a lawsuit. If you are unable to resolve the matter with your employer, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer.
It is important to remember that you are not alone. Millions of people have been discriminated against at work, and there are laws in place to protect you. If you believe you have been discriminated against, you should not hesitate to take action.
