Common Types Of Discriminatory Treatment
There are both federal and state laws that prohibit employers from discriminating in their hiring practices and treatment of employees. Unfortunately, not all employers and managers respect the civil rights of the people who work for them, and it can lead to behaviors that include being fired no reason, isolation from co-workers, demotion, unfair wage practices and more. Common types of workplace discrimination include the following:
- Discrimination on the basis of gender
- Exclusion or mistreatment of people on the basis of their race or national origin
- Mistreatment because of disability or requested accommodations
- Using age a reason to deny promotions or withhold opportunities from older employees
- Discrimination because of religious beliefs and practices
- Exclusion or mistreatment of female employees because of pregnancy or family leave
- Negative action or mistreatment of a person on the basis of sexual orientation
You may experience retaliation for filing a claim against your employer, requesting necessary accommodations for your disability, resisting sexual advances and exercising your rights in appropriate ways.
