Discrimination may occur in many different forms and in various ways. You might have a “gut feeling” that you were discriminated against. But how can you tell if you have a valid case?

Anti-discrimination laws make it illegal for an employer to take adverse employment action against you if you are a member of a protected class, or category of persons. Not all types of discrimination are protected under the federal anti-discrimination laws. Also, while the federal laws protect you against workplace discrimination, it is often very difficult to prove that discrimination occurred.
