Federal and state laws prohibit private employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of certain protected characteristics, such as race, gender, religion, and disability. Employers subject to these laws may not refuse to hire applicants because they are in a protected class, nor may they treat employees in protected classes any less favorably in the terms of employment. If you believe you were denied a promotion, paid lower wages, subjected to harsher punishment, or fired because of a protected characteristic, you should consult with an employment discrimination lawyer to discuss your options.
