Some of the most common types of discrimination include:
- Age Discrimination
- Racial Discrimination
- Pregnancy Discrimination
- Sex Discrimination and equal pay
- Disability or Handicap Discrimination
- Religion or belief discrimination
- AIDS and HIV discrimination
- Medical Condition (Cancer)
Workplace discrimination can take many different forms, both subtle and more direct. Gender discrimination is one of the most pervasive forms, but age discrimination and race discrimination still exist in the workplace today. People can also be harassed because of their religion or their national origin. These claims may be equally viable under state and federal laws.
From receiving unequal pay and unequal benefits to being overlooked for a position because of your gender, race, age, disability, or religious affiliation, many such discriminatory actions may occur in the work place.
