The law dictates that all employees be treated equally, and all job applicants considered fairly regardless of race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, physical disability, and other considerations. However, discriminatory harassment still occurs in the workplace. Discriminatory harassment takes many forms, and its expressions can be mild or severe. It is the obligation of employers, though, to ensure that their employees receive equitable and respectful treatment.
