Skilled Representation For Discrimination Lawsuits
Under state and federal employment statutes, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on certain protected characteristics, including:
- Race: Including skin color, ethnicity and national origin.
- Age: The Age Discrimination in Employment Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against a person who is 40 years of age or older.
- Religion: The law forbids discrimination based on religion, religious practices and attire, and philosophical beliefs.
- Sex: Protects women and men from discrimination based on their gender.
- Pregnancy: Protects women from discrimination for pregnancy or maternity leave, as well as breast-feeding.
- Disability: Employers may not discriminate employees based on disability, and must provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees.
- Sexual orientation: Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees are protected from discrimination at the workplace.
Discrimination can take many forms, from being passed over for employment and promotion, to being subjected to workplace harassment and other unlawful treatment.
