What Workplace Discrimination Is
While workplace discrimination happens frequently, many employees are unfamiliar with what it looks like and whether or not it is really discrimination they are experiencing. This, along with fear of what will happen if they speak up, keeps them from doing so. Thus, unfair treatment continues unchecked. When you are facing unfair treatment that is different from that of your coworkers, you are being discriminated against. While this type of statement may seem generic, it is because discrimination in the workplace looks different for every employee. It could look like being denied a promotion due to becoming a new parent. It could look like constant jokes about your race or sexuality. It could look like being given an unreasonable amount of work to do or being excluded from tasks because you and your employer have different political beliefs. It could look like doing the same job as a male coworker, but being paid less simply because you are a female.
There are laws in place, like The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and The Fair Employment and Housing Act, that are meant to protect you from these forms of discrimination at the state and federal level. The following are the protected classes under state and federal law:
- 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
