What are the various kinds of workplace discrimination?

Whether you are employed on a full-time or part-time basis, are a temporary worker or an immigrant worker, or find yourself in any other employment situation, it is essential to identify illegal discrimination and take action as soon as possible. Regrettably, many workers in Santa Barbara and other parts of California who have been subjected to unlawful discrimination in the workplace choose to remain silent for multiple reasons. Some are afraid of losing their job or being retaliated against for filing a complaint (which is also illegal), while others are not aware of the different kinds of workplace discrimination that are prohibited by law.

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, there are all sorts of examples of unlawful discrimination that appear in the workplace. For example, an employee may be discriminated against because of his or her gender, pregnancy status, national origin, disability or age. In addition to discrimination, employees may experience sexual harassment, which is also against the law.

Unfortunately, discrimination can impact workers in many ways. Sometimes, a worker may lose his or her job, be turned down for a promotion, reassigned to a less desirable position or have their application rejected because of their age, gender or race. When protected employees endure these types of mistreatment, they should stand up for their rights at once. If you think your employer broke the law by discriminating against you, you should act soon since there are time limits to filing charges.
