Employment Discrimination

Numerous state and federal laws protect employees – current, former, and prospective – from discrimination based upon protected statuses or classes, including race, color, nationality, gender, religion, age, disability, pregnancy, and sexual orientation. It is strictly illegal to treat an employee differently, refuse to hire a potential employee, or create a hostile work environment for an employee on the basis of one or more of these protected groups. If you were subjected to employment or workplace discrimination, you have the right to take legal action and pursue financial damages from those responsible.
