Below are some things you should know about federal, state and Atlanta workplace discrimination.
Georgia age discrimination
Have you been discriminated against because of your age? If you are 40 years of age or older, here are some warning signs of discriminatory behavior in the workplace:
- A younger applicant is selected for a position
- You were terminated or removed from a position only to be replaced by someone younger
- You are denied training opportunities
- You are given assignments with the intent to force a resignation or transfer
When people have encountered prejudice against age and have been denied an opportunity, the employer is most likely at fault and legal action can be pursued.
Discriminating against religion, race, gender and sexual orientation
There are many ways to be discriminated against. Federal laws are in effect to protect you from being denied opportunities or being treated negatively. Here are some examples:
- Discriminating based on gender was greatly affected by the Equal Pay Act of 1963 which protected people from sex-based wage discrimination.
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act continues to prohibit employment discrimination based on race, religion, color, sex or national origin. It also prohibits pregnancy discrimination.
- The Americans with Disabilities Act is another law that prohibits discriminating against a disability and mental capacity issues. The discriminatory practices that these and other laws prohibit include:
- Fringe benefits
- Retirement plans
