What is Employment Discrimination?
The concept of employment discrimination covers an entire class of legal wrongs committed in the workplace or the hiring or firing process that may be addressed through the civil court system. This includes many forms of discrimination that are unfortunately common, including practices and behaviors that target workers because of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, or age. It also includes wrongs that have been committed because of a worker’s illness, disability or medical status. In New York and New Jersey discrimination based on sexual orientation, marital status, or citizenship status is also illegal.
