4 common categories of on-the-job discrimination

Workplace discrimination takes a variety of forms and if your discrimination falls under the category of a "protected status," you may have the support of powerful state and federal laws to pursue financial justice in court. For example, if you were discriminated for any of the following for reasons -- and you can gather the facts and evidence to prove it in court -- you may have the building blocks of a successful claim:

Pregnancy: Pregnant women cannot be discriminated against in hiring, firing pay or any other part of their work.

Racial discrimination: Some companies are guilty of hiring people from a single race to fill their positions, or paying people from a certain race more than others. This discrimination is unlawful under state and federal law.

Religious discrimination: Different people from different faiths discriminate against one another frequently. As despicable as this behavior is, this discrimination cannot extend to the hiring, firing or promotion process -- or any other area of your work life.

Sexual orientation discrimination: Even in 2018, people find themselves facing discrimination as a result of their sexual orientation. Regardless of whether you identify by the words gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual or another category, you can pursue a cause of action if your employer discriminates against you for your sexual orientation.

If you've suddenly woken up to the fact that you're the victim of job-related discrimination, don't delay in reporting the abuse to your employer. If you don't receive an adequate response, you may want to take swift and immediate action by filing a claim with the appropriate state or federal authorities.
