Employment discrimination can take many forms and occur in hiring, promotion, job assignment, wrongful termination, and more subtle ways. Generally, in order to be illegal employer discrimination, the acts have to create a hostile work environment or lead to an adverse employment decision. There are certain major pieces of federal labor law covering employer discrimination that are important to understand.
State and local laws may provide broader protections and a right to sue for employer discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Local labor law should be consulted, as it varies by jurisdiction.
When an alleged victim of employee discrimination files a charge of discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, there will be an attempt to mediate a settlement before it's sent to an investigator. If the investigation finds illegal employer discrimination under federal labor law, it will either attempt a settlement with the employer or refer it to their legal department for a decision whether to file a complaint under the appropriate employment act. If no violation of federal employment law is found, the EEOC issues a Right to Sue notice to permit an employment discrimination claim to be filed in court.
