What types of workplace discrimination are prohibited by law? What types are not?
- Posted on: May 28 2019
Federal and New York State and New York City law prohibits discrimination on numerous basis including age, race, national origin, sexual identification,
disability, and being a caregiver status. Under Federal, State, and New York City law discrimination only exists if the discriminatory acts are because of a protected status. So if the employers targeting you for a particular reason but it’s unrelated to you being a member of a protected status then it’s not considered discrimination. For example, if your employer is just targeting you because the employer does not like you, that is not discrimination.
