Understanding what discrimination looks like

A study released on March 21 found that New York residents and others may be subjected to many different kinds of discrimination. For instance, a gay worker may understand that he or she needs to avoid mentioning a spouse or dress in a way that better conforms to gender stereotypes. Employees may also be deemed less credible than others because of their age, gender or race. In some cases, religious beliefs may play a role in determining credibility at work.

Under the Obama administration, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission took the position that gender-based protections in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protect gay and lesbian employees in New York and nationwide. On April 4, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit also came to that conclusion, marking the first time a full federal appellate court took such a stance.
