           DISCRIMINATION CLAIMS

Under M.G.L. c. 151B, s. 4, it is illegal for any employer to deny initial
employment, reemployment, retention in employment, promotion, or any benefit of
employment to a person who is a member of, applies to perform, or has an
obligation to perform, service in a uniformed military service of the United States,
including the National Guard.

Employment Discrimination
In the employment context, discrimination begins with an "adverse employment
action": something an employer does that hurts an employee, such as terminating
the employee, not selecting the employee for a promotion, giving the employee a
poor evaluation, harassing the employee with derogatory remarks or behaviors, or
denying the employee's request for an accommodation of a disability. If you believe
the adverse employment action happened to you because of your race, color,
religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity, age, criminal record
(inquiries only), disability, sexual orientation, genetics,
active military personnel,
or past involvement in a discrimination complaint, it could be discrimination.

Public Accommodation & Housing
In the housing, public accommodation, mortgage lending, or credit context,
discrimination begins when a landlord, realtor, store employee, service provider, or
lender treats one individual differently than others because of his or her
membership in a particular group, such as race, color, religion, national origin,
ancestry, sex, gender identity, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status,
children, past involvement in a discrimination complaint,
veteran status, or status
as a recipient of public assistance. If you believe you have been treated differently
than others because of your membership in one of these groups, it could be
discrimination.
