What Is Employment Discrimination?

Employment discrimination occurs when a worker is treated differently or less favorably than other similarly situated workers due to some characteristic of the discriminated worker, such as their race, national origin, religious beliefs, sex, gender, or disability. Types of conduct that can constitute employment discrimination include:

  • Unfair treatment, such as being denied a job, promotion, pay raises, or bonuses, being paid less than similarly-situated workers, being denied professional opportunities, or being assigned to less desirable tasks
  • Harassment, which can include being subjected to offensive, alarming, or threatening behavior in the workplace
  • Denial of reasonable changes to working conditions, including for a disability, medical condition, pregnancy, or religious belief
  • Retaliation, which occurs when a worker is subjected to an adverse employment decision after they exercise their worker rights or assist a co-worker with asserting their rights
  • Inappropriate questions about a worker’s medical or genetic information
