Employment Discrimination

Workplace discrimination takes place when an employee is subjected to an adverse employment action because of race, age, religion, gender, marital status, or sexual orientation. The adverse action may include being fired or demoted, being refused a job, a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, or just being forced to quit on your own.

When an employer engages in this behavior, it is harmful not just the employee who is the victim or potential employees, but the whole company and its other employees end up suffering the consequences because of by engaging in discriminatory behavior or looking the other way, the employer creates a culture where discrimination is tolerated.
