Representing Clients Nationwide
Being treated differently in the workplace because of who you are is not only demeaning, in some cases it is illegal. Employment discrimination is an ongoing problem in corporate offices, factories, construction sites, schools, hospitals, and all types of workplaces. For workers affected by harassment and other forms of discrimination, filing a claim against an employer can make the mistreatment stop and punish the employer. The nationwide law firm Chávez Law Group is committed to helping our clients escape the dehumanizing effects of discriminatory supervisors and coworkers.
Types of Discrimination in the Workplace
Discrimination may manifest as verbal threats, teasing, jokes, propositions, nonverbal communication, suggestive emails, sexual harassment, unpaid overtime, or wrongful termination. Basically, an employee can sue for workplace behavior that violates his or her right to be treated fairly. Some of the kinds of treatment considered to violate federal laws include discrimination on the basis of:
- Skin color
- Sexual orientation
- Religious belief
- National origin
Sexual harassment is another type of that creates a hostile work environment. An employer may also be in violation of the law if they fail to hire a qualified candidate due to any of the protected class statuses listed above, or if they fire an employee due to whistleblowing or bringing a discrimination claim against them.
