What distinguishes unlawful discrimination from lawful discrimination?

What distinguishes unlawful discrimination from lawful discrimination is when discrimination is based on race, creed, national origin, ethnicity, or gender. Some states have laws that also protect against discrimination on the basis of marital status or sexual orientation. If the discrimination is not against a protected class of people, it could be considered lawful. If you’re experiencing discrimination, enter your ZIP code below to consult with a local attorney.
