This article reviews the research on employment discrimination in organizations. It focuses on discrimination based on various factors like gender, caste, religion, disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, language, and pregnancy. The article examines the key features and scope of these laws, which address the importance of these laws in establishing a more inclusive work environment and emphasizes the need for awareness, enforcement, and collaborative efforts to combat employment discrimination effectively. To establish a harassment- and discrimination-free workplace, collaboration among companies, workers, and the government is crucial, as implementation of legal protections may face challenges such as employee unawareness, fear of retaliation, and inconsistent enforcement. This article provides an overview of employment discrimination laws in India, highlighting their significance and key provisions.
