Employment discrimination occurs when an employee is treated differently based on his or her race, age, gender, national origin or ancestry, disability, pregnancy, medical condition, religion, familial status, or sexual orientation. These are called “protected classes.”
Employees may experience discrimination when they are denied a promotion, demoted, or terminated when the employer’s decision was substantially motivated by the employee’s protected class (race, age, sex, disability, etc.). Federal and state laws protect employees from illegal job discrimination.
If you believe you have suffered discrimination at work you may be able to seek justice and obtain compensation for the wrongs you have suffered. We are here to help.
