Another Reminder Why Discrimination in the Workplace is Wrong

Posted by Kevin L. Sullivan | Jun 17, 2020 | 0 Comments

Partner Kathy Harrington-Sullivan wrote an article for Women's Business Daily about illegal workplace discrimination. Kathy wrote: “Recent events have prompted an important nation-wide conversation about discrimination in our society, and workplace discrimination needs to be part of that conversation. Mistreating people at work because of a protected characteristic is not just wrong, it's illegal.”

The United State Supreme Court drove home that point with its ruling this week that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants and employees based on sexual orientation and gender identity. That is in addition to the law's prohibition on discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including sexual harassment) and national origin.

Kathy's article looks at other laws that protect workers from discrimination and she outlines how companies benefit from doing the right thing.
