Recognizing Employment Discrimination in the Workplace
According to federal laws under the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, workplace discrimination is defined as prejudicial treatment towards an employee on the basis of any of the following criteria:
Sex (including sexual orientation, gender identity, and pregnancy)
Discrimination has many forms, but it commonly manifests as unfair treatment or harassment based on any of the protected classes above. In addition, it can exist in the form of inappropriate questions (often involving private genetic or medical information) or retaliation after an employee reports discrimination (or participates with any related legal proceedings). It’s also important to note that the EEOC employment laws apply to all applicants, employees, and former employees, regardless of citizenship status.
In some instances, discrimination or harassment in the workplace can be challenging to recognize, and even more challenging to prove. It can also leave yourself or your fellow employees questioning valid experiences. This is where our seasoned team of attorneys comes into play. No matter how subtle instances of workplace discrimination may appear, our team is here to help you reveal the truth. We will work relentlessly to prevent unjust actions from being swept under the rug as “harmless” or “unintentional.”
Experiencing harassment or discrimination in the workplace often takes a tremendous toll on employees: not only can it cap their economic opportunities—directly influencing an employee’s pay, opportunities for promotion, job assignments, and more—but it can significantly impact an employee’s physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing both inside and outside of the workplace.
At the end of the day, the law is very clear when it comes to workplace violations—and we’re here to help you set the record straight.
