Occasionally, you will find that an employer or an employee breaks laws set forth in order to ensure that all persons employed have the same opportunities and do not feel discriminated against or harassed in the workplace. When this happens, performing job related duties can become difficult, and both the victim of the discrimination or harassment and the company will suffer.

 

Federal protections for members of the work force can be found in:

 

  • The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADEA)
  • The Age Discrimination In Employment Act (ADA)
  • Title VII Of The Civil Rights Act Of 1964

 

These federal statues make it illegal to harass or discriminate against persons in the work place due to:

 

  • Age
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Race
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
  • Marital status

 

Examples of discrimination include using the person’s race, age, sexual orientation, etc. when making decisions about:

 

  • Promoting
  • Training
  • Offering raises or salary increases
  • Disciplining
  • Scheduling
  • Providing benefits
  • Assigning tasks and responsibilities
