The Many Faces of Employment Discrimination

By Smith & Stallworth  Jan. 24, 2011 5:25p

Most would agree that a person should be hired, retained and promoted in a company based upon their skills, qualifications and work ethic rather than being discriminated against because of someone else's prejudice. It's unfortunate, and even though illegal, that this happens all too often in the business world.

Various Types of Discrimination

Employment discrimination can have many faces and can creep in different areas like a cancer. Discrimination can occur in the hiring process, with assignment of jobs, wrongfully terminating people, not giving promotions when justly due, not giving proper compensation and in other situations. People can be discriminated against for their age, their sexual orientation, their religious beliefs, a particular disability, being pregnant, their race or nationality, and even their gender.

Discrimination can prevent a person from succeeding well in life as he is denied opportunities which he may be well qualified for, but is passed over for unjust reasons. There are laws in our country that prohibit such discrimination and if you feel you have been the victim of such an act in the Tampa area, you need to contact a Tampa personal injury attorney to work with you.
