Employment Lawyers Prove Discrimination
First: What is Discrimination in the Workplace?
Workplace discrimination is when an employer treats an employee differently due to their belonging in a protected class, listed below. This can be a difference in hiring, pay, benefits, promotions, termination and more. Our employment lawyers safeguard your individual interests for allegations based on:
- Gender discrimination (including a possible “glass ceiling”)
- Age discrimination
- Racial discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Sexual orientation discrimination
- National origin discrimination
Additionally, employees have rights to FMLA leave, to not be terminated for unlawful reasons, and to not be harassed at work. Other areas of employment law include cases regarding:
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) issues
- Wrongful termination
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Hostile work environment
- Wage, hour and overtime issues
