Both Federal and Washington state law forbids discrimination or unwelcome conduct that is based on an individual’s race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, ancestry, medical condition, marital status, or any other protected status. Discrimination can take many forms.
Harassment is a form of unlawful discrimination when the verbal or physical conduct toward an individual is based on his or her race, color, age, national origin, gender, ancestry, disability or other protected status. Harassment has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work/school performance or otherwise adversely affecting an individual’s employment opportunities. Harassment may take the form of epithets, slurs, negative stereotyping, or threatening, intimidating, or hostile acts. It may also take the form of written or graphic material that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual or group because of race, color, age, national origin, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, sexual preference, religious creed, veteran status or disability.
I am passionate about fighting for people against unlawful discrimination.
