Your employer cannot discriminate against you because of your race, national origin
or other personal characteristics
. If your employer has fired you, denied you a raise or promotion, created objectively intolerable working conditions
or created a hostile work environment
you may have a case against them.
This website guides you through the four factors to consider to determine whether you have been discriminated and whether you are protected against discrimination in the eyes of the law. To help you understand your situation based on the framework of the law, follow these four steps:
- Are you are considered an employee who is covered under the law? Only employees and applicants for employment are protected under the law, not independent contractors.
- Is your employer subject to the anti-discrimination laws? Employers that are of a certain size, employment agencies, and labor organizations are subject to employment discrimination laws.
- Is your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law? The conduct may include firing you, denying you a raise or promotion, harassing you or creating a hostile work environment, or creating objectively intolerable working conditions.
- Are you in a protected class of people that is protected from discrimination? Employers cannot discriminate against you because of your race, national origin, gender, religion and because of other characteristics.
