Employment Discrimination

The average American spends almost a third of each week at work. If you are in a service profession or "on call" you may spend a majority of your waking time at work. The point is most of us spend more time at the office than we do at home. We make certain that are homes are safe, we feel secure, are family will not be harmed or injured and that we feel comfortable. However, at work where we spend much of waking time, we do not control our environment, our employer does.

Whether you have the job or career of your dreams or you are biding time and collecting a paycheck there laws that govern the relationship between employer and employee. If your rights are violated, you are entitled to seek redress for the injuries that you have suffered.

One type of conduct that often leads to emotional injury and litigation involves workplace discrimination. Illegal workplace discrimination may take any one of a number of forms:

  • Sexual Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Race-Based Discrimination
  • Ethnicity-Based Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination

In some states, it is also illegal to discriminate based upon weight or sexual orientation. Also, the law protects whistleblowers, that is, those who report their employer’s illegal conduct, from discrimination.

It is important to note that discrimination may take any one of a number of forms. It may take the form of the following by way of example:

  • Failure to hire
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Failure to promote
  • Compensation differences vs. those outside the protected class
  • Inferior work schedules or assignments
