Discrimination in San Francisco

Discrimination is a general term used to describe a person being treated unfairly. It is normally associated with a person who is trying to get hired or is being limited by their employer for advancement within the company.

Discrimination takes on several different forms. I have listed some of the most common below.

  • Racial Discrimination
  • Gender Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Sexual Orientation Discrimination
  • Pregnancy Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination

Not hiring or advancing a candidate or employee who is qualified is just a part of discrimination. Some harassment is also discriminatory. For example, if a fellow employee hangs a noose over someone's desk or talks about their gender in a demeaning way, they are creating a hostile environment. People are to be treated as equals in the workplace and deserve to work in a peaceful environment devoid of harassing co-workers. If the employer fails to provide this type of environment the employee has the right to hire an employment or discrimination attorney to correct the problem.
