Forms of Workplace Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace is a pervasive issue that can manifest in myriad ways, subtly or overtly affecting an employee’s career trajectory and mental health. Federal and state laws strictly prohibit discrimination based on protected characteristics such as gender, race, disability, sexual orientation and age. Despite these regulations, discrimination remains a reality for many, presenting itself through:

  • Sex Discrimination: Unfair treatment due to an employee’s sex or gender identity.
  • Pregnancy Discrimination: Negative job-related actions because of pregnancy or related conditions.
  • Disability Discrimination: Failure to accommodate disabilities or unjust treatment based on them.
  • Race Discrimination: Adverse employment decisions made based on an employee’s race or ethnicity.
  • Age Discrimination: Bias against employees due to their age, particularly those 40 years old and above.

These forms of discrimination can lead to unequal pay, denial of promotions, undeserved demotions, or even wrongful job terminations, creating not only a hostile work environment but also a diminished sense of personal worth and professional value among affected employees.

Escalation to Unlawful Termination and Other Harmful Behaviors

Regrettably, instances of discrimination can escalate, resulting in unlawful termination. This occurs when an employer terminates an employee’s position for reasons tied to their protected characteristics, in violation of their rights. Beyond termination, employees might face constructive discharge, where the work environment becomes so intolerable that resignation seems the only option or other detrimental actions like unwarranted demotions or denials of employment opportunities.
