This mandatory poster is a summary of Hawaii's laws prohibiting employment discrimination. It summarizes the rights that employees have from discrimination and includes examples of such instances. Instructions on how to file a complaint are included as well.
You have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination in your employment. All applicants and employees of private and public employers (except the federal government), union members, and job seekers in employment agencies are protected by Hawaii law against employment discrimination. You cannot be denied a job, fired, or subjected to unequal terms and conditions of employment because of your race, sex, including gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, color, ancestry/nati onal origin, disability, marital status, civil union status, credit history, credit report, arrest and court record (except in limited circumstances), or domestic or sexual violence victim status. Sexual harassment by a supervisor or coworker is a form of sex discrimination. Examples of Unlawful Employment Discrimination: • If you are a pregnant employee and are denied leave recommended by a doctor, or are denied reinstatement to the same or comparable position after giving birth. • If you are subjected to unwanted sexual advances or demands, offered benefits in exchange for sexual favors, threatened with demotion, firing, or loss of benefits for refusing sexual advances, or subjected to unwelcome sexual conduct. • If you are denied a job or a promotion because of your race, sex, including gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, color, ancestry, disability, marital status, civil union status, credit history, credit report, arrest and court record (except in limited circumstances), or domes tic or sexual violence victim status. Filing a Complaint: You have the right to file a complaint if you have been subjected to discrimination because of your race, sex, including gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, color, ancestry, disability, marital status, credit history, credit report, arrest and court record, or domestic or sexual violence victim status. You can file a complaint by calling the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission. Under state law, you must file your complaint within 180 days of the act of discrimination. You have the right to be free from discriminatory or retaliatory action from your employer for filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, or opposing a discriminatory practice.
