Discrimination and Harassment

Federal, State, and local laws make it illegal for employers to mistreat their employees based on

  • race
  • color
  • national origin
  • gender and sex harassment
  • religion
  • age
  • disability
  • sexual orientation and
  • other protected reasons.

Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees (which includes harassment or retaliation) or  permitting others to discriminate, harass, and/or retaliate against its employees based on these categories.
