Has an employer discriminated against you due to your gender, race, age, or disability? If so, you may be entitled to an employment law claim. It is never easy to come forward and accuse an employer of discriminating against you. Employment law attorneys can help you receive a settlement if you face discrimination in the workplace.
Discrimination happens every single day in the United States, and it’s even possible at the largest and most conscientious companies. The U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lists the following types of discrimination as illegal:
- Age, whether you are older or younger
- Disability or pregnancy
- Equal pay
- Genetic information
- Harassment, such as an employer discriminating against you after you accused him or her of harassment
- National origin
- Your race or the color of your skin
To win any discrimination claim against an employer, you’ll need to have evidence showing that you were treated differently than another employer who’s of another race, gender, ethnicity, etc. While it may be beneficial to ask a colleague to testify on your behalf, an employment law attorney may also be able to prove a history of discrimination. To learn more about your specific discrimination lawsuit options, speak with an independent employment law attorney by filling out a Free Case Evaluation. Discrimination cases can be challenging to prove, especially at a smaller company or if you’re an at-will employee, so an attorney can be a valuable resource.
