Workplace Discrimination Laws
City, State, and Federal Discrimination Laws identify protected classes to prevent discrimination. In addition the New York City Human Rights Law as well as ordinances in Cleveland and many other Ohio cities add sexual orientation and gender identity to these protected classes and your unemployment status is a new protected category under this law. Additionally, in New York City, employers cannot discriminate against you due to your marital or partnership status or if you have been the victim of a sexual offense, such as domestic violence or stalking.
Employees are also protected from discrimination under the Family and Medical Leave Act, which provides the right to take time off from work for your medical needs or to care for ill family members. The Americans with Disabilities Act protects disabled workers from discrimination as well. It’s illegal for your employer to discriminate against you for any of these reasons and if you exercise your rights by filing a discrimination complaint or participating in an investigation or lawsuit, your employer cannot retaliate against you for your actions.
Some different types of discrimination include
- Age Discrimination
- Race Discrimination
- Gender Discrimination
- Compensation & Equal Pay Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
- Religious Discrimination
