During the Advisory Council’s September meeting, Ryan Frasier, UPEA’s legal counsel discussed workplace discrimination and harassment.
Frasier, of the law firm Kirton McConkie, described what constitutes discrimination based on federal law for protected classes on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, disability, etc.
In addition, Frasier explained what an employee should do if he or she is being discriminated against or harassed. Employees must file a claim with their employer or the Utah Antidiscrimination and Labor Division (UALD).
