Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination occurs when an individual receives unequal treatment in an employment situation based on a trait unrelated to the performance of their job, such as race, gender, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. This section offers in-depth information on discrimination in the workplace, and the federal laws that prohibit it. It’s important to learn about these laws so you can protect yourself and your career. Below you will find links to key federal laws and U.S. Supreme Court decisions on employment discrimination. You will also find information on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, which is the agency charged with enforcing employment discrimination laws.
