Sometimes discrimination is more subtle, leaving employees blindsided by wrongful termination.
Carefully consider the workplace environment and whether employees in the same or similar roles receive equal treatment.
An overwhelming majority of the American workforce is “at-will,” meaning that employment is presumed to be voluntary and indefinite. In other words, you may quit for any reason, at any time, without warning. It’s also important to realize that an employer has the right to terminate you for almost any reason, at any time, without warning. Thankfully, it is illegal for an employer to terminate you on the basis of discrimination and/or retaliation for complaining about discrimination, workplace injuries, illegal activities, or other protected activities.
The bottom line: discrimination against an applicant and/or employee on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age is illegal. It happens, though. And workplace discrimination manifests in many different ways. Some examples include:
Harassment of any kind is wrong, but only illegal if based on discrimination or protected activity.
