Other types of equal pay discrimination; immigrant discrimination; national origin discrimination; sexual orientation discrimination; whistleblowers; and more. Discrimination and harassment in the workplace can come in many forms, and although such misconduct can sometimes be overt, it can be subtle or even concealed. The federal Equal Pay Act requires any employer that is already subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (the federal wage and hour law) to provide equal pay to men and women who perform 'equal work', unless the difference in pay is caused by differences in seniority, merit or some other factor that is not based upon sex. Under state and federal laws, it is illegal to discriminate in any aspect of employment, including: hiring and firing; compensation, assignment, or classification of employees; transfer, promotion, layoff, or recall; job advertisements; recruitment; testing; use of company facilities; training and apprenticeship programs; fringe benefits; pay, retirement plans, and disability leave; or other terms and conditions of employment.

Contact them today. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) bars discrimination against employees or applicants who are over the age of forty, by any employer with twenty or more employees. An employee may often state a claim under the ADEA if he or she is fired or forced to retire, and is then replaced by a younger employee. Unlike in Title VII cases, however, many courts have held that the ADEA does not prohibit practices that have a 'disparate impact' on older employees. Instead, the ADEA only bars deliberate discrimination against older workers. Many of the anti-discrimination laws requires anyone (whether employee or applicant) who believes that he or she has been discriminated against to exhaust 'administrative remedies' prior to bringing a lawsuit. This means that anyone who wants to file suit must first bring his or her claim to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or an affiliated state agency, which may investigate the claim and take action on it, or may advise the employee to seek his or her own attorney and proceed him- or herself. Title VII also prohibits discrimination because of participation in schools or places of worship associated with a particular racial, ethnic, or religious group. Title VII also includes prohibitions against pregnancy based discrimination and sexual harassment (requests for sexual favors, a hostile environment, and more). The 'hostile environment' standard also applies to harassment on the bases of race, color, national origin, religion, age, and disability. Pregnancy based discrimination includes pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions must be treated in the same way as other temporary illnesses or conditions.
