Discrimination and Harassment

Numerous laws such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Civil Rights Act of 1866 (Section 1981), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibit employment discrimination and harassment in the workplace. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate or harass an employee on account of the employee’s age, sex (gender), pregnancy, race, color, national origin, disability, religion, or because the employee took a medical or family leave under the FMLA, among other reasons.
