What Does Employment Discrimination Look Like?
There are federal laws that establish certain protected classes in the workplace. Race, sex, age, and religion are some of the most widely recognized protected classes, but there are several others. Each state also has its own list of protected classes, which can expand upon but not reduce those listed in federal laws.
If you have been treated negatively at work because of a protected class, then you have experienced employment discrimination. In many cases, employment discrimination is not obvious at first. Employers know what they are doing is both wrong and illegal, so they often try to be subtle with their discriminatory tactics to hide their true intentions.
Employment Discrimination Cases We Focus On
There are many ways that employment discrimination can harm an honest worker. To be the most effective we can be for our clients, we have focused primarily on a few specific types of employment discrimination cases.
If we think our law firm is not the absolute best choice for your type of case, then we can help you find a law firm that we trust to handle it. Thanks to our reputation and experience in employment discrimination cases, we have built a reliable network with other law firms around the country.
The three types of employment discrimination cases we handle the most frequently are:
- Gender identity discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Sexual harassment
Recently, the firm prosecuted a civil sexual harassment claim on behalf of a former winner of America's Next Top Model. During litigation, we secured a favorable out-of-court settlement on behalf of our client.
Our team also represented six elderly women in a civil suit against a well-known motel chain for age discrimination. We secured a very favorable settlement on behalf of these women during the litigation process.
We also successfully represented a female executive who was discriminated against by her employer based on her sexual orientation.
What Are the Benefits of a Successful Employment Discrimination Case?
You might be understandably hesitant to file an employment discrimination case against your employer. After all, they are responsible for providing the paychecks that keep you financially afloat. However, we cannot stress enough the importance of filing a claim, as a successful claim can bring so many benefits to not just you but also your coworkers who might be facing similar issues.
The conclusion of a case could result in:
- Company-wide harassment retraining sessions
- Termination of discriminatory parties
- Financial compensation awarded to you
People who are discriminated against at work are often impacted financially as well as emotionally. When handling your case, we will want to consider any possible damages you might be owed, such as money you should have earned had you not been unfairly ignored during promotions and bonuses. You can also be given punitive damages as ordered by the court if it is determined that your employer knowingly and maliciously discriminated against you.
