What is Discrimination?
Discrimination is the act of unequal treatment against a person based on a distinguishing characteristic of the person with no regard to their individual merit and ability. There are federal and state statutes that strictly prohibit discrimination. According to the Illinois Human Rights Act (775 ILCS 5/), individuals are free from discrimination due to “race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, order of protection status, marital status, physical or mental disability, military status, sexual orientation, or unfavorable discharge from military service in connection with employment, real estate transactions, access to financial credit, and the availability of pubic accommodations.”
