Examples of Discrimination in the Workplace
Our legal team in Houston handles the following types of employment discrimination cases:
Race Discrimination: This form of discrimination can include derogatory remarks or racist epithets,
grooming policies that unfairly target a particular race, or only allowing
people of a certain race to be promoted to certain positions.
Religious Discrimination: It is illegal to discriminate against an employee because of their religion.
This includes taking disciplinary action against an employee for requesting
reasonable accommodation for religious holidays or banning religious garbs
that wouldn’t interfere with crucial job duties.
Age Discrimination: Workers can face discrimination based on their age, which is why the Age
Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Texas Labor Code make
it illegal for employers to discriminate against an employee because of
their age. Under these laws, employers cannot fire, demote, or affect
an employee’s benefits based on their age.
Gender Discrimination: Employers cannot implement workplace policies that statistically affect
one gender over another and must pay male and female workers the same
wage for the same work performed under similar conditions.
Disability Discrimination: The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and the Texas Labor Code protect
employees from discrimination based on a perceived disability. Employers
cannot fire, demote, or affect an employee’s benefits due to a disability.
National Origin Discrimination: Employers cannot discriminate against an employee based on their national
origin or citizenship status. This includes terminating, demoting, or
affecting an employee’s benefits because of their national origin.
Pregnancy Discrimination: Employers cannot treat an employee differently because they are pregnant.
Pregnancy discrimination can take many forms, including refusing to hire
or firing a woman because she is pregnant.
