State and federal laws have made discrimination against a protected class illegal in the workplace. Most employers have policies in place that prohibit discrimination and provide a process for making complaints. Unfortunately, these protective measures do not always function as they should. Workplace discrimination still exists, and the nuances of these cases make them difficult to prove.
