Weight Discrimination in America


About 17% of men and 9% of women have reported race discrimination; and about 12% of all adults have now reported weight discrimination.

Yet no federal or state law exists that prohibits weight discrimination (for now, at least). The cities of San Francisco and Washington D.C. prohibit weight discrimination.

Discrimination involves health care, education or workplace situations, such as cases in which people said they were fired, denied a job or a promotion because of their weight.

Even though no law currently exists to prohibit this discrimination, why test it? It’s extremely expensive to litigate – even when you believe you’re right.

Do not make a workplace decision that takes weight into consideration. Use unbiased decision-making that is the best decision for your business.
