Workplace discrimination based on age, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion is not tolerated in New York. Employees have the right to work in a workplace free from all types of discrimination. A worker who has experienced workplace discrimination can take advantage of the law to ensure that the same incident does not happen again. Doing so also promotes awareness that anyone can be a victim of discrimination and employers as well as co-workers can be held liable if the discrimination is proven.
