What is Employment Discrimination?

Under the Ohio Revised Code 4112.02, it is unlawful “for any employer, because of the race, color, religion, sex, military status, national origin, disability, age or ancestry of any person” to discriminate in matters of employment.

In addition to Ohio anti-discrimination laws, numerous federal laws also protect individuals from being discriminated against in the workplace as a result of their: Age, race, gender, sex, disability, pregnancy, and other characteristics. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are just some examples of federal laws that protect employees against employment discrimination.

If an employee is terminated because of the above factors, or the employee’s decision was motivated by those factors, that termination is considered wrongful.

Employment Discrimination may Occur at Different Phases in the Employment Process

Employment Discrimination can occur at any phase of the employment process including, but not limited to, decisions made during the hiring process, termination process, compensation process, whether one gets a promotion or otherwise.

Employment Discrimination can also exist in many different forms, such as:

  • Inappropriate jokes or comments related to the employee’s disability, race, gender, or other protected characteristics
  • Terminating an employee based upon
  • Interfering with an employee attempting to take types of leave, such as maternity leave, disability leave, or FMLA leave
  • Failing to promote an individual due to his or her disability or age
  • Retaliating against an employee who seeks workers compensation or FMLA benefits
