What constitutes discrimination in the workplace?

by Kelly Mulloy Myers, Lawyer Referral Service Panelist

There are a number of federal and Ohio state laws that prohibit employers from taking adverse action against a person because of certain protected characteristics.  An employer is prohibited from making employment decisions because of a person’s gender, pregnancy, race, national origin, religion, age (if the person is forty or older), and disability.  An adverse employment action can include failing to hire a person, passing a person over for promotion, or terminating a person because of a protected characteristic.
