Employment discrimination generally exists where an employer treats an applicant or employee less favorably merely because of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or status as a protected veteran.
Harassment occurs when discrimination is severe or pervasive enough to alter the terms and conditions of employment and to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.
If you are an employee who has experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace, you know all too well how painful and career-altering such conduct can be.
Discrimination is less-favorable treatment based on a person’s race, age, gender/sex, disability, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or veteran status. Discrimination can take many forms and can negatively affect your hiring, conditions of employment, compensation, or prospects for promotion. It can even get you fired.
Harassment involves conduct that includes unwelcome advances or other conduct that is so offensive, intimidating, or abusive that it changes your work environment or even affects your performance. We understand that harassment in the workplace can take many forms and can dramatically harm your relationship with the employer, your opportunities for success at your job, and your emotional and physical well-being.
