Discrimination

Employment Discrimination laws seek to prevent discrimination based on a variety of biases, including race, sex, religion, physical disability, and several others. Discriminatory practices that are against the law include bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, compensation, and various types of harassment.
