What Is Discrimination?
Discrimination is a common occurrence, but how do you know what workplace discrimination actually looks like? Many employees are unfortunately abused by employers because they are unaware of rights, or sometimes too scared to speak up about unfair treatment. When you’re being treated differently by an employer or coworker on the basis of one of your characteristics, you are being discriminated against. This may seem like a vast statement, but that is because workplace discrimination can look different for every employee! Below are some examples of workplace discrimination:
- Making jokes in regard to your sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, etc.
- Drastic changes in workload after a conversation about your political views, etc.
- Drastic changes in performance reviews/observations due to parenting status, gender identity, etc.
- Exclusion from certain work tasks, meetings or benefits based on your disability or medical conditions, etc.
- Unequal pay compared to another class of employee, especially when it comes to gender, etc.
The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and The Fair Employment and Housing Act are laws that protect employees from discrimination at both the state and federal level. The protected class falls under the following characteristics:
- Race, color
- Ancestry, national origin
- Religion, creed
- Age (40 and over)
- Disability, mental and physical
- Sex, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical conditions)
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity, gender expression
- Medical condition
- Genetic information
- Marital status
- Military or veteran status
- Equal pay
It is important to remember that an employer could be in the same protected class as you and still discriminate against you. For example, if an employer is the same race or ethnicity as you, but makes fun of you in reference to these characteristics, that is still discrimination, and it could still negatively affect the way you are perceived at work or your ability to move up and achieve your career goals. That is why you need skilled and seasoned San Diego discrimination lawyers on your side who can help you fight for justice and secure the fair compensation you deserve.
