Employment Discrimination on Long Island
Employees on Long Island continue to face discrimination in employment. Sex discrimination on Long Island can happen when an employer treats one particular sex different than another. For example, an employer may promote only men instead women. Another growing type of discrimination is gender discrimination and gender stereotype discrimination. An example of gender stereotype discrimination is where an employer fires a male who displays “effeminate” characteristics.
