Standards of equality in the workplace

All workplaces in the United States should treat employees with respect and without unlawfully discriminating against them. However, unfortunately, many workers are discriminated against each year. This is why laws have been put in place to deter people from discriminating at work and to provide victims of workplace discrimination with the possibility to take legal action.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you should take the time to understand the standards of equality that are in place. If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work, you can proceed to discover your legal options.

Protections under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discriminatory actions from employers with 15 or more employees based on religion, gender, national origin or race. This means that these employers cannot refuse to hire, deny training, harass, pay less, fail to promote, demote or fire based on these characteristics.

Protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act

Those with disabilities are protected from discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act. This act also applies only to employees who have more than 15 employees. Disabled employees are not only protected from acts of discrimination such as firing, demoting or paying less, but they are also entitled to reasonable accommodations that will help them to carry out their job. For example, they may request to work from home or to gain access to equipment that will help them manage their disability at work.

If you think you have suffered discrimination in the workplace, you should take action to protect your career.
