What is Employee Discrimination?

Workplace discrimination can come in many forms. In short, discrimination occurs when an employee is treated differently from other employees based on his or her personal circumstances. Connecticut's fair employment laws prohibit employers from taking adverse action against potential or current employees based on a variety of factors.

The factors that employers may not use as the basis of adverse employment action include:

  • Race
  • Age
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Ancestry
  • Marital status
  • Pregnancy
  • Physical disability
  • Learning disability
  • National origin
  • Religion

Discrimination can begin during the hiring process. It is illegal for an employer to refuse to hire an individual based on any of the above-listed factors. As an employee, discrimination can be experienced in a variety of ways. It is unlawful for employers to discriminate against individuals in regards to compensation, conditions, and privileges on the basis of one or more of the factors listed above. Employers are also prohibited from terminating employment because of these factors.

Proving Workplace Discrimination in CT

Unfortunately, employment discrimination does sometimes happen in the workplace. Employers will try to cover up any clues of discrimination as serious consequences can affect their business entirely.

Employment discrimination can be discovered in the statistics of the company, including:

  • Managers or executives being the same age
  • Gender or race
  • Recent hiring consisted only of younger people
  • Verbal or written statements indicating the assumption that someone is not fit for a task, like “Let the veterans take this one.” or “We’ll have one of the boys handle that"

Any proof of employment discrimination you can present will help solidify your case.
