Fighting Against Workplace Discrimination
Federal and state laws protect employees from workplace discrimination. Under these laws, employers are not allowed to treat employees differently based on personal characteristics unrelated to job performance and duties. The Wolcott Law Firm LLC has over a decade of experience assisting workers who have suffered discrimination on the job.
Persistent Advocates For The Fair Treatment Of Employees
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and other laws, you are protected from discrimination based on personal classifications. Your employer cannot show adverse actions toward you based on the following personal characteristics:
- National origin
- Skin color
- Religious beliefs
Your experience, work achievements, education and performance should be the priority of employers and coworkers when evaluating you in the workplace.
Adverse employment actions based on discrimination can include:
- Hiring and firing
- Denial of promotions and benefits
- Unequal salary and wages
Many people believe employment discrimination can be due to unequal treatment as a result of nepotism, favoritism or bullying. Unfortunately, there are no laws that protect against these treatments. However, there are subtle ways in which employees can experience unlawful discrimination, and a skilled attorney can fight for your rights and advocate to improve your workplace environment.
