workplace discrimination still occurs in today's society despite federal, state and local employment laws that prohibit discriminatory treatment.
Conversations about race, culture, political views, gender and sexual orientation seem to go nowhere, and often end with unresolved issues.
This, in turn, leads to conflict within the workplace, which affects interpersonal relationships with colleagues, your business reputation and, ultimately, productivity and success.

The federal government laws prohibited discriminatory employment practices.
The managers at the work place starts it, sometimes they do they all thing and forget about the government.
State Laws Prohibiting Discriminatory PracticesEvery state in the U.S. has a Fair Employment Practices Agency that works in collaboration with the EEOC to enforce state anti-discrimination laws. When an employee complaint of unfair employment practices is filed with the EEOC, the charge of discrimination is dually-filed with the state FEPA.
How & Why? The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission enforces federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 among other anti-discrimination laws. Employers with 15 or more employees are subject to federal regulations. The EEOC provides technical assistance and guidance to help employers understand their legal obligations concerning equal employment. When companies violate federal laws, it may be attributed to oversight or lack of understanding. On the other hand, the fines, penalties, costs for litigation and lost time for egregious, intentional discrimination are steep, not to mention the bad publicity.
Where & When? This is prohibited in majority of the states.
Who is affected?
The people in the states is affected because they have to suffer being denied jobs because of their race,culture,gender,or sexual orientation.
