Discrimination encompasses a large portion of employment law

One thing that every worker here in Scottsdale and elsewhere should count on is a workplace free of hostility. Sadly, even in an age where tolerance is higher than ever before, people still suffer from discrimination, which results in unwanted and unwarranted harassment and retaliation. For this reason, discrimination issues encompass a large portion of employment law.

For those Scottsdale residents who suspect their employers are discriminating against them, but are not sure, there are some behaviors and actions to watch for. For instance, if an employer denies a certain employee training that others receive, that could be due to discrimination. Someone may get paid less than others for the same job duties and title.

Outside of the more subtle forms of discrimination such as those outlined above, it could be more blatant. Harassment, retaliation, firing and more often turn out to be more overt forms of this legally prohibited behavior. Employees of a certain age, certain national origin or gender could find themselves being pushed out by those they work with and for. A company may refuse to make a reasonable accommodation for someone with a disability. These are not the only examples or instances of discrimination that occur in workplaces across the country.

If a particular worker believes that he or she is being discriminated against, it would be worthwhile to inquire further to be sure. A "gut feeling" could be more right than he or she realizes at the time. Before taking any additional action, talking to an employment law attorney might confirm those suspicions. If it looks as though discrimination is occurring, an employee could obtain further information regarding applicable rights and options for legal recourse going forward.
