Marital Status Discrimination

Marital status discrimination means treating someone differently because of his or her marital or relationship status. In other words, because the person is married, widowed, divorced, single, or unmarried with a same-sex or opposite-sex partner (whether a legally recognized domestic partner or not). Marital status discrimination can be accompanied by other forms of discrimination, such as parental status, pregnancy, or sex discrimination.

Examples of marital status discrimination include offering different benefits to married employees than non-married employees and requiring single employees to work longer hours.
