Employment Discrimination Cases
Employment discrimination occurs when an employer (or union or employment agency) violates Federal or State law and hires, fires, retaliates against or treats an employee illegally based upon the employee’s:
- National origin
Illegal discrimination may include types of harassment that create an offensive, abusive or hostile work environment for employees. There are a variety of situations that could fall under the umbrella of employment discrimination. That’s why it’s so important to get the help you need from an experienced attorney.
Federal Laws Protect Employees from Discrimination
If you have been penalized, terminated, retaliated against or otherwise discriminated against by your employer on the basis of your race, color, gender, age, pregnancy, religion, national origin or disability, your rights under a number of state and federal laws may have been violated.
Some important federal laws that protect employees from discrimination include:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
- The Equal Pay Act of 1963
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
- Older Workers Benefit Protection Act
- Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)
- Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
- Pregnancy Discrimination Act
- The Family Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA)
Employers Have Rights Too
On the other hand, the same laws also provide defenses to employers who may be facing a lawsuit over discrimination.
