Marital Status Discrimination

Marital status is a protected category under and federal laws.  An employer cannot refuse to hire you or treat you differently at work because you are single, married, divorced, widowed, unmarried with either same sex or opposite sex partners, or a single mother or single father.


When interviewing for a job, if you are asked if you are married, planning on getting married, pregnant or plan to have kids, your prospective employer may have already committed marital status discrimination against you.


At work, you may have been denied certain benefits because you are single.  You may have been passed up for a promotion because the employer did not want to promote someone in a same-sex marriage, or because you are married to someone of a different race.  Your employer may have refused to give you a more challenging position because you are a single mother. All of these are examples of marital status discrimination, and they are unlawful.
