Marital Status Discrimination

Discriminating against an individual based on his or her marital status is illegal. That means your employer cannot discrimination against you because you are married, not-married, divorced, having a marriage dissolved or annulled, separated, widowed, or have any other marital status.

Protections against discrimination extend to persons married to a member of the protected class. If an employer does not hire you or fires you because of an interracial marriage, then discrimination may have occurred.

To determine whether you are protected against discrimination from your employer, there are three other things to consider:
1. Whether you are considered an employee who is covered under the law.
2. Whether your employer is subject to the anti-discrimination laws.
3. Whether your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law.
4. What reason your employer discriminates against you.
