Discriminating against an employee or worker is illegal. Discrimination occurs when an employee is treated less favorably because of some attribute that differentiates them from others. It could be related to a person’s race, nationality, family status, military status, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or age.
Often the discrimination can be very subtle. For example in Griggs v. Duke Power Co., argued before the United States Supreme Court in 1970, Duke Power was found guilty of race discrimination due to a company procedure used to select employees for internal transfers and promotion.
Discrimination can also be very direct. For example when someone does not offer a job to a women because a women may be required to take maternity leave where a man would not.
Employers are required to provide workers an environment that is continually safe and free from discrimination. Employees who find themselves in a compromised work environment where discrimination is taking place can become depressed, feel threatened and have their work performance suffer. If this situation exists, employers are violating employment laws.
