Understanding Different Types Of Workplace Discrimination

"No one deserves to have his or her livelihood threatened, and no one should have to put up with discrimination or other behaviors at work." -- William M. Julien

Types Of Discrimination In Florida

Unfortunately, an employer's motivation to promote, hire or fire an employee, for instance, is not always based on his or her performance. Such action can be based on other motivations, ones that are often against the law.

There are many different ways that employers can unlawfully discriminate against their employees.

  • People over the age of 40 are protected by federal law from being discriminated against in favor of younger workers.
  • A worker's career may be stalled or thwarted by discrimination based on gender.
  • Pregnant women can face employment barriers, sometimes finding themselves demoted or even fired after taking guaranteed leave.
  • If an employer refuses to make scheduling allowances for the Sabbath or religious holidays, this may constitute religious discrimination.
  • Employers will discriminate against a worker based on his or her sexual orientation.
