Employment discrimination is unfair treatment based on an impermissible factor. Generally recognized impermissible factors include an employee's-
- national origin
- disability, or
- pregnancy status
- Additionally, certain types of workplace harassment, retaliation, or bullying may violate laws prohibiting employment discrimination.
A myriad of federal, state and local laws prohibit discrimination in the workplace. As a result, it is often difficult for an employee or applicant to know if his/her employer's conduct is actually discriminatory.
