Discrimination can arise in many forms, some of which may not be readily apparent. Some of the categories protected by law include gender, sexual orientation, race, color, national origin, religion, and age.. Discrimination may appear in the form of being denied employment due to your race, or being denied a promotion due to your religious belief. It can take the form of being demoted or fired in retaliation for reporting discrimination or harassment, or whistle blowing. Actions to discharge you when you reach a certain age, may also be unlawful discrimination, and be the basis for a wrongful termination suit. If you know or suspect you have been discriminated against, we encourage you to discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer to learn about your options. If you are an employer who has had a charge of discrimination made against you, you have defenses that can be raised to shield yourself from liability.
The most common forms of harassment are sexual, religious, and racial or color harassment. Unlawful harassment occurs when an employee endures unwanted advances or offensive behavior at work. Employees are entitled to a place of employment that is free from such hostile work environments, and employers have a responsibility to take measures to prevent them. If you have been harassed by a co-worker, manager, supervisor, employer, or any other party at your job, or you are an employer who want to take measures to prevent liability for harassment in the workplace, we can help. Such matters should be taken seriously and dealt with immediately. We will work hard to assert and protect your rights.
