Recognizing Discrimination in the Workplace
When it comes to a claim regarding discrimination, an employee must be subjected to misconduct and/or adverse employment actions because of their real or perceived association with a protected characteristic, such as age, sex, gender identity, race, religion, etc.
Here are few examples of how workplace discrimination can occur:
- An employee is automatically fired after requesting reasonable accommodation for a disability.
- An employee is demoted after reporting sexual harassment.
- Employees who reach a certain age over 40 aren’t considered for hiring or are pushed out of the company.
- Employees of a certain race aren’t provided with the same opportunities for advancement within a company.
- A company hosts exclusive leadership training sessions for members of one sex but not the other.
- A company policy exists that compels employees to conform to dress codes that aren’t aligned with their gender identities.
- An employer bans employees of a specific faith from religious expression at work.
Should the spirit of any of the scenarios mentioned above seem to align with an experience that happened to you at work, reach out to our employment discrimination attorneys in New York for help.
