Texas Employment Discrimination: What Is It?
If you believe that you have been the victim of employment discrimination, it is important to understand what employment discrimination entails and what your rights are. Those who have been subjected to employment discrimination are entitled to redress the issue; a qualified Dallas employment lawyer will be able to tell you what you should do about your case.
What characterizes employment discrimination is an employer’s use of unfair or illegal employment practices that are based on the employee or potential employee’s racial background, national origin, physical disability, age, sex, or religion. Various state and federal laws classify such behavior as discriminatory and prohibit it on those grounds.
Employers might engage in many different forms of discriminatory practices. These can include bias, singling out, or excluding specific employees based on the factors mentioned above in any aspect of applying for, engaging in, or ending employment. Allowing an individual’s protected status to affect decision-making in hiring, firing, payment and salary, employee classification, transfers, promotions, lay-offs, job advertising, company facility access, fringe benefits, retirement plans, disability leave, or any other terms and condition of employment is to engage in employment discrimination.
There are other ways of engaging in employment discrimination in addition to the criteria listed above. Using stereotypes and assumptions about race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or disability to determine employment decisions is one. Another is harassing an individual at the workplace due to genetic information, disability, color, race, national origin, religion, sex, or age. A third is retaliating against an employee who has challenged discrimination at work, filed a discrimination charge against the employer, or participated in an investigation of workplace discrimination. Last, but not least, denying or withholding employment opportunities based on an individual’s association with a person of a certain race, nationality, religion, or disability status is discrimination.
Although sexual orientation is not a protected class in Texas, there is a growing body of law in other states that prohibits employment discrimination based on sexual orientation.
