Employers May Not Discriminate Against Employees by Denying BenefitsUnfortunately, some employers attempt to terminate older workers or workers with expensive medical conditions in order to decrease costs. However, it is illegal to discriminate against employees and deprive them of their promised benefits. Additionally, the law prohibits an employer from retaliating against an employee who opposes discrimination.
For example, an employer cannot fire an employee because he or she is more costly under a certain health insurance plan. Similarly, an employer may be liable for discrimination if the employer terminates an employee just before his or her stock options, retirement benefits, or other benefits become vested.
