The term segregation conjures up some very distasteful aspects of societal history but can also apply to the current workplace. The term refers to the practice of an employer keeping certain groups of employees apart on the basis of age or on some other prohibited grounds, including race, gender and the like. The term also refers to the practice of employers keeping certain groups away from the public eye or outside of the view of customers for unlawful reasons.
