Discrimination

Discrimination includes racial profiling, workplace harassment, and employment discrimination. Racial Profiling is using a person’s race or ethnicity, by law enforcement, as a main factor in deciding whether to engage that individual. Workplace Harassment is unwanted contact or behavior at the workplace which becomes illegal when one of the following becomes true: enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or the conduct is severe enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. Employment Discrimination is unfair treatment by a potential or current employer on the basis of any of the following:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex (including pregnancy, parenthood, and breastfeeding)
  • Disability (physical or mental)
  • Age (18 and older)
  • Genetics
  • Marital status (includes domestic partnership)
  • Sexual orientation
  • Enrollment in vocational, professional, or college education
  • Family duties
  • Source of income
  • Place of residence or business
  • Personal appearance
  • Political affiliation
  • Victim of intrafamily offense
  • Tobacco use
  • Gender identity or expression
