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:
Such discrimination cannot influence decisions about hiring, termination, discipline, amount of pay, or job assignments. Victims of employment discrimination can be entitled to relief including missed pay, expenses, and even emotional harm suffered. In many instances, such discrimination occurs against a whole group of people (such as where women are paid less than men) which can be resolved as a class action.
