Discrimination in the workplace, whether in the form of gender discrimination, race discrimination, or some other bias or prejudice is a violation of your civil rights.
Employment discrimination claims are often the most difficult, factually complex, and emotionally charged cases, but that doesn’t dissuade our skilled employment attorneys. If you’ve been the victim of discrimination on the job or are being accused of discrimination in your workplace, give us a call – we’re ready to step up to the plate and fight on your behalf.
Different Types of Workplace Discrimination
By law, an employer may not terminate an employee’s job based on any the following factors:
- Gender or Sexual Orientation
- National Origin
- Disability or Genetic Information
- Leave Under the Family & Medical Leave Act
Federal laws including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), state laws such as Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, and other legislation governing these types of discrimination claims are complex and ever-evolving. Our experienced attorneys have represented numerous employees in pursuing and maximizing their claims.
