Employers are forbidden by law from engaging in any conduct that discriminates
based on age, race, color, nationality, sex/gender, religion, military
status, sexual orientation, disability or perceived disability, genetic
information, or pregnancy status. Employers who engage in illegally discriminatory
behavior can be held accountable under the law. If you feel that you are
a victim of a hostile work environment, talk to a lawyer at Russell Friedman
Law Group for sound legal advice about the protections provided to you
under state anti-discrimination law.
Examples of workplace discrimination may include:
- Refusing to hire or firing someone based on their religion
- Making sexually explicit jokes about women
- Aggressive or exclusionary behavior based on a person’s skin color
- Not considering an employee for a promotion that they are eligible for
as retaliation for reporting workplace discrimination
People who are passed over for opportunities for employment or advancement
because of discrimination should speak with a lawyer about their options.
