“Effective participation by members of all racial and ethnic groups in the civic life of our Nation is essential if the dream of one Nation, indivisible, is to be realized.” – United States Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
What is Employment Discrimination?
Workplace discrimination is one of the most morally changing issues facing this nation. Despite decades-old federal and state anti-discrimination laws, workplace discrimination is still prevalent. Discrimination, whether by an employer, supervisor or co-worker, is devastating to the employee being discriminated against, as well as to the employer and society. Employment discrimination often results in human suffering, low self-esteem, loss of interest in employment and decreased productivity, feeling of unworthiness, workplace violence, unemployment, family disruption, hopelessness, depression, etc.
Discrimination (including discriminatory harassment) is prohibited in hiring, terms and conditions of employment, in promotion, demotion, discipline, failure to accommodate, termination, etc. The gist of employment discrimination cases is that you are treated differently than others because of your race, sex, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, etc.
