Job discrimination is illegal in the United States. There are a number of federal laws that protect workers from discrimination in employment, including:
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
The Equal Pay Act of 1963: This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in pay.
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA): This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of age for workers who are 40 years of age or older.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA): This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA): This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of genetic information.
These laws apply to all employers with 15 or more employees. In addition to these federal laws, some states also have laws that prohibit discrimination in employment.
Job discrimination can take many forms, including:
Refusal to hire
Denial of promotion
Retaliation for complaining about discrimination
If you believe that you have been discriminated against in your employment, you should take the following steps:
Document the discrimination. This includes keeping a record of the dates, times, and details of the discriminatory conduct.
Talk to your employer. If you feel comfortable doing so, you should talk to your employer about the discrimination. You may want to bring a witness with you to the meeting.
File a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is a federal agency that enforces the laws against employment discrimination. You can file a complaint online or by mail.
You may also be able to file a complaint with your state's civil rights agency.
If you file a complaint with the EEOC, they will investigate the matter. If they find that there is reasonable cause to believe that discrimination has occurred, they will try to mediate a settlement between you and your employer. If mediation is unsuccessful, the EEOC may file a lawsuit on your behalf.
You can also file a lawsuit on your own. However, it is important to note that employment discrimination lawsuits can be complex and expensive. It is a good idea to speak with an attorney before filing a lawsuit.
If you have been discriminated against in your employment, you should not hesitate to take action. The laws against employment discrimination are there to protect you.
Outcome: Settled and dismissed with prejudice.
