Types of Discrimination
Capable individuals are often mistreated due to circumstances beyond their control. Though there are laws against discrimination, it sadly continues to occur in institutions worldwide. Luckily, these laws can be invoked when making a case against unfair treatment at work.
Discrimination in the workplace and elsewhere is typically based on one or more of the following:
- Skin color
- Ethnicity or ethnic origin
- Gender or gender identity
- Sexual orientation
- HIV or other STD or illness
Regardless of the type of discrimination, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim with the EEOC and to file a lawsuit against your employer. This is a complicated process, and hiring an employment attorney will ensure that you get fairly compensated if your case is proven.
The harm suffered based on these or other actual or perceived characteristics can take many forms. Some individuals are never hired, while others are passed over for promotions. People may be terminated from their job due to pregnancy or because they are deemed too old. Many others suffer sexual harassment in the workplace.
When concerned employees attempt to bring discrimination to light, they may be threatened with termination or fired outright. Because victims fear for their livelihood, they often suffer in silence for years, allowing discriminatory policies to continue unchallenged. It only takes one brave employee and the right legal team to break this vicious cycle.
