- Accent Discrimination
Accent discrimination occurs when an employer discriminates against certain individuals because of their strong accents. However, a caveat to the rule against accent discrimination is that an employer may not discriminate based on a person's accent if the accent doesn't materially interfere with their job performance. Therefore, whether accent discrimination has occurred depends on the duties and tasks assigned to an employee.

problems arise when performance evaluations are influenced by factors outside of your control or when employers abuse their managerial authority by conducting evaluations in a discriminating way. In some cases, an employer's system for performance evaluations can have a disparate impact on certain employees based on their age, race, ethnicity and gender.

An employer, co-worker or supervisor also cannot harass you because you do not conform to the typical male or female stereotype.
