Workplace Discrimination in Phoenix
As mentioned above, both federal and state laws provide protections against discrimination for employees at work. These laws prohibit discrimination based on specific classes, such as age, sex, and religion. Adverse treatment may involve any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, promoting, demoting, training, pay, and benefits.
Discrimination may also occur when employer policies have a disparate impact on protected classes. For example, an employer’s dress code policy that prohibits hats, hoods, and other headwear may seem neutral on its face, but it may have a disparate impact on members of certain religions who wear religious headwear when they leave their homes.
Age, Sex, and Religion Discrimination
Age is a protected category under discrimination laws. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees who are over 40 years old. This means that employees may seek recourse for any adverse treatment, harassment, or a hostile work environment related to their age.
Sex discrimination relates to employees who experience adverse treatment based on their sex, which includes gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Both men and women may be victims of sex discrimination. Sex-based discrimination can include sexual harassment and offensive comments about sex and gender.
Religious discrimination occurs when employees are treated adversely and unfairly because of their religion. Employees may not be discriminated against for their religious practices or religious attire. Employers are also required to make reasonable accommodations for employees’ religious beliefs and practices.
Compensation And Legal Remedies For Workplace Discrimination
The goal for discrimination compensation is to put employees in the position they would have been in had the discrimination not occurred. Depending on the facts of each case, employees may recover financial compensation for lost earnings, lost benefits, attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other out of pocket expenses.
Additional compensation may be available for emotional damages and punitive damages. Other legal remedies might include job placement or reinstatement if the employee was wrongfully terminated, demoted, not promoted, or not hired because of his or her employer’s discrimination.
