Discrimination laws seek to prevent discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, physical disability, and age by employers. Federal, state and local laws prohibit discrimination in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, compensation, and various types of harassment.. The United States Constitution and state constitutions provide additional protection where the employer is a governmental body if the government has taken significant steps to help the discriminatory practice of the employer.

  • Retaliation
