If you have been treated unfairly in the workplace based on any of these factors, you may be a victim of unlawful discrimination. Some of the laws that protect you include the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.
