- National origin
- Gender Identity and expression
Retaliation: Certain activities are protected under the law, so that you cannot be fired or penalized for participating in them:
- Reporting unlawful practices at the company
- Reporting unsafe work conditions
- Taking time off to vote or serve jury duty
- Taking family leave or medical leave
- Filing a discrimination or harassment complaint
Contract Violations: When employment is governed by a contract, employers must follow the rules and procedures in the contract when terminating employment. If the contract is broken, you should consider legal action.
