Understanding Your Rights: Navigating Employment Rights and Challenges


When applying for a job, equal opportunity is expected for all applicants meeting the qualifications listed. However, discrimination based on factors like age, legal status, or prior record is illegal. Various laws and agency policies, such as those enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), protect against such discrimination. The EEOC safeguards against discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, sex, and disabilities. Additionally, laws like the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and Ban-the-Box legislation protect immigrants and individuals with criminal records from discrimination during the hiring process. If discrimination occurs, resources such as advocacy groups and legal assistance can provide support in asserting employment rights through appropriate channels like reporting to the EEOC.
