Discrimination is not something that occurs only during the hiring process, it may also occur in compensation, assignment or classification of employees; transfer, promotion, layoff or recall; job advertisements; recruitment; testing; use of company facilities; training and apprenticeship programs; fringe benefits; and pay, retirement plans, and disability leave, and other situations.
