Discrimination in the Workplace

Rochester Employee Rights Lawyer

Both federal and state laws protect you from discrimination in your place of employment. It is important that you are familiar with these concepts in order to ensure that you are not the victim of an employee rights violation. The law protects you from unfair treatment that is based on a "protected characteristic." What factors are considered protected? Put simply, any characteristics that do not pertain to your ability as an employee or to your job performance.

For example, protected characteristics may include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Ethnicity / race
  • Marital status
  • Pregnancy
  • Religious beliefs
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Political beliefs
  • Genetic information

If an employer refuses to hire you or treats you differently based on one of these factors, he or she may be in violation of workplace discrimination laws. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal for employers, employment agencies, labor organizations, training programs, and so on to discriminate against any individual with respect to his or her "compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment" due to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
