Employment Discrimination

The South Carolina Human Affairs Law protects you against employment discrimination when it involves:

  • Unfair treatment or harassment because of race, color, religion, sex (including sexual harassment and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 and above), and disability.
  • Denial of a reasonable workplace accommodation that you need because of your religious beliefs or disability.
  • Retaliation because you complained about job discrimination, or assisted with a job discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

If you believe you have been discriminated against at work, you can file a Charge of Discrimination.
