What Qualifies as Workplace Discrimination?

The first step in taking action against workplace discrimination is recognizing it. There are certain actions, situations, behaviors, and conduct that should be red flags for discrimination. Learning how to identify discrimination and take swift action is an important skill for any employee to possess. By definition, “discrimination” refers to any form of different treatment of one person than his/her peers because of a protected class. Common examples of workplace discrimination include:

  • Choosing one job applicant over another qualified one because of a protected class.
  • Excluding certain people during recruitment.
  • Denying certain employees raises, promotions, or other benefits.
  • Paying two employees with equal qualifications different salaries.
  • Discriminating when assigning medical leave, disability leave, or retirement plans.
  • Discriminating when it comes to assigning promotions or laying employees off.
  • Refusing to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities.
  • Refusing to hire or promote a person because of his/her religion, nationality, or sexuality.
  • Imposing stricter rules on someone because of a protected class.
  • Excluding someone from workplace meetings and opportunities.

If you have experienced any adverse employment action at work that appears to arise out of discrimination but are not sure what to do,  talking to an employment lawyer can help. The sooner you speak to a legal representative about possible discrimination at work, the better. Prompt action can help limit your damages, such as the amount of money you lose because of a demotion or job termination. It also ensures you meet all the deadlines for filing a discrimination claim against your employer if it becomes necessary. The attorneys at The Law Office of Omid Nosrati are always available to discuss a potential claim with you in Los Angeles.
