Employment discrimination takes many forms. Sometimes it’s sexual harassment or race discrimination. It can be age discrimination, or discrimination based on religion or national origin. Women who do the same work as men are protected by equal pay laws, and women have certain rights when they are pregnant. Workers with disabilities also have rights, as do workers who must take time off for illness or to care for a family member.
Workers sometimes suffer retaliation because they exercised their rights under the law. If you make a claim of discrimination, you have the right to be free from retaliation by your employer. If you exercise your right to file a claim for worker’s compensation, your employer cannot take action against you. And, if you blow the whistle on the illegal conduct of your employer, you should be protected.
