Union City, California (EastBayDaily) — Employment-Discrimination.Org may be one of the few free self-help resources on the internet, but there’s absolutely nothing about it that should be taken lightly. For over a year the socially-conscious website has carried with it a BIG message about equal employment practices.
All across the country employees and potential employees are standing up for their rights when they believe that they have been discriminated against based on age, race, appearance, disability or other factors. This is because federal agencies responsible for enforcing federal laws make employment discrimination illegal. According to the free help website employment-discrimination.org, now celebrating their 1st anniversary, “some states have even adopted employment discrimination legislation to protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation.”
The Office of Research, Information and Planning reported that racial discrimination and sex discrimination represent the highest percentages of charges filed in a fiscal year.
Racial discrimination occurs when an employer treats an individual differently because of such factors as race, ethnicity, skin color, facial features or hair texture. Specifically, an employer may not harass, isolate, demote, promote, punish, increase or decrease the pay of, or determine whether or not to hire someone based on race or ethnicity. Sex discrimination occurs when a person receives unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or is subject to verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature in the work place.
If you believe that you are a victim of employment discrimination and you believe that your rights have been violated you have a right to file a charge of discrimination. Stand up for your rights! You may deserve compensation.
