Have You Been Discriminated Against At Work?
Employment is essential to our ability to care for ourselves and our families. For many people, work gives life a sense of purpose and order. When people are stripped of their ability to make a living, they are deprived both financially and personally on a fundamental level.
In recognition of these fundamental truths, both the federal government and Ohio state government have passed laws that prohibit employers from different types of workplace discrimination. As an employee or job applicant in Ohio, you are protected from the following types of discrimination:
- Race discrimination
- Gender/sex discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- National orientation discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Age discrimination

Discrimination Is More Than Just Wrongful Termination
While wrongful termination is often the basis for a discrimination claim, state and federal laws define discrimination as something much more than just wrongful termination. Discrimination includes decisions regarding a term, condition or privilege of employment, including hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation, benefits, job assignments and training.
