Employment Discrimination

Prohibited discriminatory practices in employment must be based on certain protected classes and include these adverse actions, among others: discharge, discipline, suspension, harassment, terms and conditions, failure to accommodate and retaliation.

Protected classes for employment discrimination are: Race, Color, Religion, Creed, National Origin, Ancestry, Sex, Pregnancy, Age, Sexual Orientation (incl. transgender status), Physical or Mental Disability, Marriage to a Co-Worker and Retaliation for Engaging in Protected Activity (opposing a discriminatory practice or participating in an employment discrimination proceeding).

Legally, a charge of discrimination must be filed within six months of an adverse action in employment discrimination claims.
