Types of Employment Discrimination

Sexual Harassment

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates a humiliating, intimidating, hostile, abusive or otherwise offensive work environment.

Wrongful Termination

Firing an employee due to race, age, gender, disability, religion, national origin or another illegal reason, is considered wrongful termination.

Discrimination

Unlawful workplace discrimination involves treating one or more employees less favorably than other co-workers because of their race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability.

Retaliatory Discharge

Retaliatory discharge occurs when an employer fires an employee because the employer was engaging in activities in violation or rules, regulations, or the law pertaining to public health, safety and the general welfare — and the employee reported the wrongful conduct or the employee refused to participate in the wrongful conduct.

Violation of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Rights

Eligible employees are entitled to a total of 12 workweeks of leave during any 12 month period for events such as: birth of a child; placement of a child for adoption or foster care; care of a seriously injured immediate family member; or for an employee’s own serious health condition. The FMLA also provides that the employee is to be restored to the position held at the time the leave was taken, that no benefits are to be lost and that the employee’s pay is not reduced as a result of the employee taking the leave. Lastly, the FMLA protects the employee from any retaliation the employer might take because the employee requested the leave.
