Unfortunately, illegal discrimination in the workplace still occurs, but it is important to know that you have rights.
Federal law prohibits discrimination by employers on the basis of one’s race, religion, sex, age, color, and/or national origin. These federal employment laws also help protect against workplace sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, and protecting your right to equal pay.
Federal law also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for engaging in the protected activity of reporting or opposing illegal discrimination. Retaliation can include, but is not limited to, being passed over for a promotion, being demoted, changes in compensation and/or benefits, harassment, or unwarranted discipline.
