COMMON TYPES OF DISCRIMINATION:

RACE AND COLOR DISCRIMINATION​​

 

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate on the basis of race or skin color, including personal characteristics associated with a specific race such as hair texture or facial features. Discrimination may also occur due to association with a member of a particular race or color, such as association by marriage. Discrimination may include refusal to hire, unlawful termination, compensation, promotion, benefits, harassment or retaliation for voicing a complaint on behalf of yourself or someone else.

NATIONAL ORIGIN DISCRIMINATION

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate on the basis of national original or ancestry, including a person’s actual or perceived place of birth or country of origin.  Discrimination may include refusal to hire, unlawful termination, compensation, promotion, benefits, harassment or retaliation for voicing a complaint. Discrimination may also include unjustified English proficiency requirements, or English-only rules and policies.

DISIBILITY DISCRIMINATION

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate on the basis of disability, whether actual or perceived, including the disability of a family member. Employers are also required to make reasonable accommodations.

Discrimination may include refusal to hire or train, unlawful termination, compensation, promotion, benefits, harassment, or retaliation for voicing a complaint. The law forbids sexual harassment by supervisors, co-workers and in some circumstances, even clients and customers. Sexual harassment can include creating a hostile work environment or quid pro quo favors, such as demanding sexual favors in exchange for hiring, promotion, increased compensation or to avoid termination.

RETALIATION

It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate or take adverse action because a person has opposed discriminatory employment conduct. Discrimination includes refusing to hire, failure to promote, harassment, or requiring dismissal of a complaint to maintain employment. It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee who files a complaint, or who cooperates with the investigation of a complaint.
