To discriminate is to make a distinction. It is "a treatment or consideration based on class or category rather than individual merit, partiality or prejudice". Discrimination is defined in the French similar to the American civil rights law as unfavorable or unfair treatment of a person or class of persons in comparison to others who are not members of the protected class because of race, sex, color, religion, national origin, age, physical/mental handicap, sexual harassment, sexual orientation or reprisal for opposition to discriminatory practices. French and American laws prohibit an employer from discriminating persons in all aspects regarding employment, including recruitment, selection, evaluation, promotion, training, compensation, discipline, retention and working conditions, because of their protected status. Discriminatory employment practices have become more subtle and more difficult to identify and correct, while the workplace continues to reflect unfair and unlawful discrimination. We will probe into the various situations of discrimination in the workplace in these countries.
