There are many different types of discrimination.
Some of the most common forms include discrimination based on age, sex, race, and religion.
Discrimination can take many forms, but basically, discrimination is the act of treating someone in an unfair manner based upon an inherent characteristic or trait that they have.
Discrimination can be denying employment and education opportunities, housing, refusing to transact business, or withholding other public services from individuals.
One very important act of discrimination is employee discrimination. This occurs when a person is treated in a manner that is not consistent with the treatment of the other workers.
If an employee is bypassed for a promotion, while another employee less experienced and with less training receives the promotion…this is discrimination. Harassment in front of other employees is also a form of discrimination.
Whatever form it takes, discrimination is against the law.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of your age, gender, sexual orientation or religion, you should take action. The best way to determine what action must be taken to protect your civil rights is to schedule a consultation with a lawyer who is experienced in discrimination cases.
Proving discrimination is often a difficult task. Unless there has been specific violence and a police report, your lawyer will need to gather as much information from you as possible and conduct an investigation.
Since these cases are difficult to prove, it is extremely important to choose a lawyer who has a proven track record wining discrimination cases.
