Employment Discrimination

There are few ideas more American than the protection of civil rights. As it relates to employment, this means that employees have basic civil rights that cannot be violated. Specifically, both federal and state law prohibit employment discrimination based on:

  • Race

  • Sexual orientation

  • Sex or sexual harassment - including pregnancy, sexual orientation and/or gender identity

  • National origin

  • Religion

  • Age

  • Disability; a qualified employee cannot be treated differently because of the disability

  • Equal pay - the Equal Pay Act requires that women and men be paid the same for equal work

Such discrimination cannot influence decisions as to hire, terminate, discipline, amount of pay or job assignments. In many instances, such discrimination occurs against a whole group of people (ex. instances where women are paid less than men) which can be resolved as a class action.
