What is Employment Discrimination?

Employment discrimination is a pervasive issue in workplaces across New York and the United States. It refers to unfair and illegal treatment of employees or job applicants based on certain protected characteristics. These characteristics include race, color, religion, sex, gender, national origin, age, disability, and in some cases, sexual orientation or gender identity. Employment discrimination can occur at any stage of the employment process, from hiring and promotion to termination and beyond.

What Would Be Considered Employment Discrimination?

A wide range of actions can constitute employment discrimination, including:

  • Hiring Discrimination: When an employer makes hiring decisions based on protected characteristics rather than qualifications.
  • Harassment: Creating a hostile work environment through offensive jokes, slurs, or unfair treatment based on protected traits.
  • Unequal Pay: Paying employees differently based on their protected characteristics for performing the same job.
  • Promotion and Advancement Discrimination: Denying promotions or advancement opportunities to individuals due to their protected characteristics.
  • Termination Discrimination: Firing or laying off employees because of their protected traits.
  • Retaliation: Taking adverse actions against employees who report discrimination or participate in related investigations.

Why is it Important to Report Employment Discrimination?

Reporting employment discrimination is crucial for several reasons:

  • Legal Protection: Federal and state laws protect individuals from employment discrimination. Reporting ensures your rights are upheld.
  • Prevention: Reporting discrimination can help prevent it from happening to others in the workplace.
  • Accountability: Employers who engage in discriminatory practices must be held accountable for their actions.
  • Justice: Reporting discrimination can lead to remedies such as compensation for lost wages, job reinstatement, or changes in workplace policies.
  • Diversity and Inclusion: Promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion benefits not only the individual but also the organization as a whole.
