What are the different types of discrimination?
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) make it illegal to discriminate against anyone over the age of 40. While some states have laws against discrimination against younger workers, favoring an older worker over a younger one is not considered illegal.
Employers cannot treat a qualified employee with a disability unfairly due to their disability.
The Equal Pay Act mandates that men and women must be given equal pay for equal work.
Genetics Discrimination: Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) ensures that no employee or applicant can be discriminated against based on genetic information, including genetic disorders or diseases.
Employees cannot be treated unfairly due to their country of origin or ethnicity.
The Pregnancy Discrimination Act prohibits discrimination against pregnant employees in hiring, firing, promotions, and job assignments.
If you experience unfair treatment based on your skin color, race, or because of your association with someone of a certain race or color, it is considered race discrimination.
Unfair treatment based on your religious, ethical, or moral beliefs is classified as religion discrimination.
