Employees Struggling Through Discrimination In The Workplace

A worker facing employment discrimination can quickly find himself or herself in a difficult — or nearly impossible — situation. Fortunately, numerous legal protections exist to ensure an employer is held accountable for its actions. If you were mistreated in the workplace based on factors such as your race, gender or religion, schedule a consultation at Levy Davis & Maher, LLP.

Unfortunately, numerous gray areas exist between what the law considers discrimination and what the law will simply categorize as bullying or harassment. The law very clearly states that if decisions are made regarding your performance, promotion or daily production based on your inclusion in a protected class, then you are likely being discriminated against. You might have a legal case if you are being victimized by harassment or discrimination based on factors including:

  • Race
  • Sex
  • National origin
  • Disability
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Pregnancy
  • Sexual orientation

Discrimination based on office politics, personal issues or nepotism might not — on their surface — be illegal, but the culmination of this poor treatment might lead to a hostile work environment. If you feel mistreated at work, it is wise to discuss the matter with a knowledgeable attorney. We can provide guidance and help you gather the information necessary to prove your case.
