here are many types of discriminatory practices that can happen at the workplace and they are generally related to the race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age of the employee. Typically, an employer or supervisor will not come say they are discriminating against an employee, however, they may act out through unfair discipline; poor job assignments; little or no consideration for a promotion; failure to provide proper training; poor and unwarranted evaluations resulting in little to no pay increase; not providing the same or proper benefits that other employees get; and even unwarranted terminations.
Often, we see employers treat pregnant employees differently. They fail to provide proper accommodations when requested, terminate the employees, or harass them to the point that they have no choice but to quit. This is not acceptable and employers are required to treat pregnancy in the same way they might someone with a temporary illness or medical condition.
Can I Be Retaliated Against for Filing a Discrimination Claim?
t is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you or terminate you for filing an employment lawsuit. Examples of retaliation include firing or demoting workers, reducing hours, assigning undesirable shifts, cutting down job duties or purposely giving false performance reviews that negatively affect workers’ positions.
