Types of Discrimination

What are the types of discrimination

If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work because of your race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information, you can file a “Charge of Discrimination” with a state or federal administrative agency, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A charge of discrimination is a signed statement asserting that an employer, union or labor organization engaged in employment discrimination.

Usually, a Charge of Discrimination must be filed before a lawsuit is filed.
