Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination (or workplace discrimination or labor market discrimination) is discrimination in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, and compensation. It includes various types of harassment.

Many jurisdictions prohibit some types of employment discrimination, often by forbidding discrimination based on certain traits ("protected categories"), such as gender, race, ethnicity.

Earnings differentials or occupational differentiation is not in and of itself evidence of employment discrimination. Discrimination can be intended and involves disparate treatment of a group or unintended, yet create disparate impact for a group.

Famous quotes containing the word employment:

    Combining paid employment with marriage and motherhood creates safeguards for emotional well-being. Nothing is certain in life, but generally the chances of happiness are greater if one has multiple areas of interest and involvement. To juggle is to diminish the risk of depression, anxiety, and unhappiness.
    Faye J. Crosby (20th century)
