Employment Discrimination Can Come in Many Flavors
In a perfect world, people would be hired and promoted based on their merits and job performance. Unfortunately, we live in a society in which people are often discriminated against by their employers.
Employment discrimination occurs when an employer discriminates against someone in hiring, promotion, compensation, job requirements or termination. This type of discrimination may also be considered a form of harassment. Many employers attempt to combat this type of discrimination by striving to be Equal Opportunity Employers (EOE), which do not discriminate based on such traits such as race, gender, religion and ethnicity.
Employment Discrimination Laws are in place to protect employees, and employment discrimination breaks these laws. If you have been discriminated against by an employer, taking action as allowed by law can help you right a wrong-doing to yourself, and prevent others from facing the same discrimination, and in many cases, let your employer know that their behavior is not acceptable. If you allow your employer to discriminate against you without making it known, your employer may continue to treat others in the same manner.
Employment discrimination law is a type of law that helps those who have been discriminated against in the workplace by their employers. Lawyers who practice this type of law are experts in state and federal laws governing employers’ policies for hiring, promotion and treatment of employees. When taking action against a discriminatory employer, it is important to find an attorney who is best-equipped to handle discrimination issues.
In that perfect world, people would be hired and promoted based on their merits and qualities, and their employers would maintain the appropriate behaviors and protocols. Unfortunately, this does not always happen in the workplace, and employment discrimination does exist.
