Definitions of Workplace Discrimination
The law clearly outlines elements of age, race, and gender discrimination. It can be difficult to prove discrimination occurred in some cases.
Therefore, it is important that you keep records and documents detailing the behavior and acts. The more evidence you have, the stronger you case becomes.
The definitions of workplace discrimination are as follows:
If you have been shut out from a promotion or replaced by a younger, less experienced employee, you may be the victim of age discrimination.
Likewise, employers who refuse to hire an older employee in favor of younger workers may be violating laws prohibiting age discrimination.
If you have faced unfair treatment because of physical characteristics, language, culture, or ancestry, you may be the victim of racial discrimination.
Certain questions on an application can reveal bias, as well as refusing to promote someone because of their race.
If you are a woman who and were paid less for performing the same tasks as men, you could be a victim of gender discrimination.
Gender discrimination also includes being passed over for the positions or advancement opportunities provided to male co-workers, despite equivalent credentials.
Additionally, sexual harassment is a form of sex and gender discrimination. Men and women can experience gender discrimination, though it is more common with female employees.
