Common Forms of Employment Discrimination

In the United States, people are legally protected by federal laws that prohibit employers from discriminating. Unfortunately, some employers either directly or indirectly discriminate against workers, thereby allowing a hostile work environment to exist. Employment discrimination can include unwarranted firing or discriminatory hiring practices, among other behaviors. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Mark T.

Types of Employment Discrimination

Sadly, some employers discriminate against people by either firing or not hiring them because of certain characteristics. Employers are not allowed to discriminate based on any of these legally protected factors:

  • Age
  • Race or ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Sexuality
  • Religion

If you or a loved one has faced discrimination in the workplace, you may be able to seek compensation from the liable parties to help cover lost wages and other associated expenses.
