Types of Workplace Discrimination

The law clearly outlines elements of employment discrimination; however, 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.

Workplace discrimination can take various forms, including:

  • Race discrimination: Discrimination based on an individual's race, ethnicity, or color, which can manifest in hiring, promotions, or unequal treatment.
  • Age discrimination: Discrimination based on an individual's age, whether it is younger or older employees facing unfair treatment.
  • Gender discrimination: Discrimination based on an individual's gender, including unequal pay, sexual harassment, or biased treatment (including during pregnancy).
  • Disability discrimination: Discrimination against individuals with disabilities, such as denying reasonable accommodations or excluding them from job opportunities.
  • Religious discrimination: Discrimination based on an individual's religious beliefs or practices, including refusal to accommodate religious practices or harassment.
  • National origin discrimination: Discrimination based on an individual's country of origin or nationality, including unfair treatment, harassment, or denial of employment opportunities.
