Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation
Discrimination and Harassment
Workplace discrimination in Arizona may be illegal if it is based on the following:
- Race or skin color
- National Origin
- Sex or Gender
Discrimination can take many forms. Your employer may train younger employees in new software while failing to train you and other older employees. Your employer may give favorable treatment in the form of more desirable work shifts or other privileges to employees belonging to a particular race or gender. Your employer may look the other way when faced with complaints regarding sexual harassment or assault of female employees. Your employer may fail to provide a means for you to continue working with a disability. Examples like this may entitle you to a claim for monetary damages against your employer.
You Have Rights
Do not be afraid to speak out against discrimination. If you oppose workplace discrimination and your employer disciplines you, terminates your employment, or takes any adverse action against you, your employer may be liable for retaliation. The anti-discrimination laws provide protection against employees who notify their employers of concerns relating to discrimination. Do not let your employer bully you into keeping quiet about discrimination in the workplace.
