Discrimination occurs when you’ve been treated differently than others because you possess certain characteristics. These characteristics may include race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, marital and parental status, disability, sexual orientation or genetic information.

Harassment involves unwelcome conduct and, in some cases, can be unlawful. This can entail something that’s said or written, or even a graphic or physical contact. The person or people committing the offending behavior are deliberate in their actions and create a hostile environment.
