What is workplace discrimination?

Discrimination in the workplace is defined by federal, state, and sometimes local laws. Generally speaking, it is unlawful for employers to make decisions about hiring, firing, job assignments, or job promotions based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, pregnancy or sexual orientation.

Which laws apply to your particular situation could depend on various factors such as who your employer is, where you work, and what type of work you do.
