4. Genetic Information: When an employee or job applicant is treated unfavorably because of genetic information.

5. Harassment: When an employee or job applicant is a target of unwelcome conduct that is based on any of the categories of discrimination, and this conduct either creates a hostile work environment or become a condition of the victim’s continued employment.

6. National Origin: When an employee or job applicant is treated unfavorably because of they are from a different country, different ethnicity, or appears to be a different ethnicity.

7. Pregnancy: When an employee or job applicant is treated unfavorably because of pregnancy, childbirth, or if they have been diagnosed with a related medical condition.
