The attorneys at Newmark Storms Dworak LLC take on employers when they are treating their employees poorly. If you have experienced employment issues such as discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace, you may have legal options to pursue justice and compensation.
What is employment discrimination?
Employment discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee unfairly due to their race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information. This type of discrimination is illegal under federal law (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act) and many state laws.
What is workplace harassment?
Workplace harassment is a form of employment discrimination that involves unwanted and offensive conduct, such as jokes, slurs, or other verbal or physical conduct, that is based on an individual’s protected characteristic (such as their race or sex). This conduct must be severe or pervasive enough to create a hostile work environment or to result in an adverse employment action (such as being fired or demoted).
What is retaliation in the workplace?
Retaliation in the workplace occurs when an employer punishes an employee for exercising their legal rights, such as reporting discrimination or harassment or participating in an investigation into such conduct. Retaliation is also illegal under federal and state employment laws.
What can I do if I have experienced employment discrimination, harassment, or retaliation?
If you have experienced employment discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, you may have the right to file a charge with a government agency, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), or to file a lawsuit against your employer.
It is important to act quickly, as there are time limits for taking legal action. An experienced employment law attorney can help you understand your rights and options and guide you through the process of pursuing justice and compensation.
