Understanding Employment Discrimination
Employment discrimination occurs when an employee or job applicant is treated unfairly due to their race, gender, age, disability, religion, national origin, or other protected characteristics. This type of discrimination can manifest in various forms, including hiring decisions, promotions, pay discrepancies, wrongful termination, and workplace harassment.
