Federal, state, and local laws protect people from employment discrimination, housing discrimination, and harassment because of gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. Despite these laws, people of color and LGBT persons frequently experience discrimination in employment and housing.

Employment discrimination can happen at any level of a company. Women executives might be held to a different standard of work performance than men, for example, or minority sales people might be given the worst sales territories. Discrimination cases can be difficult to prove and often involve a group of workers joining together in a class action suit.

There are specific procedures for bringing complaints of civil rights violations, discrimination, or a hostile work environment to the attention of the government. Whether to file a case with a local authority or with the federal government is a decision that should be discussed with a knowledgeable civil rights defense attorney.
