What is unlawful discrimination?

Employers must not be motivated in making employment decisions by an employee’s protected characteristics which are race, gender, age, disability, and national origin.  However, unlawful employment discrimination does not occur merely because an employee has a protected characteristic and suffers an adverse employment decision such as firing or demotion.  Employers have the right to make employment decisions for valid business reasons such as poor work performance or absence from work.
