Understanding Your Rights
An individual may not be discriminated against based upon any of these factors when it comes to hiring, pay, promotions, or firing. Furthermore, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee in regards to assigning work stations, granting breaks or time off, or setting any other employment term or condition. Employers can face a number of penalties if they are discovered to be engaging in any type of discrimination.
Although these laws are intended to prevent discrimination of all kinds, it is still prevalent in many workplaces. If you were fired, denied a promotion, not hired, or any out-of-place action was taken against you because of one of the factors mentioned below, you have the right to seek legal help.
