When is Discrimination Illegal?

Federal law protects employees from discrimination based on these categories:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity and national origin
  • Veteran status
  • Religion

As an employee, you have the right to be protected from these types of illegal discrimination. The law provides remedies if you have been wrongfully terminated, denied a promotion or received undesirable work assignments and you fall within one of the protected statuses.

What Happens if My Employer Retaliates Against Me for Complaining?

Federal law also protects people who make formal claims or indicate their concerns about discrimination. You cannot be punished, fired or demoted because you consulted an attorney about discrimination or initiated a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Retaliation because you exercised your legal rights is prohibited. If this happens to you, consult a lawyer.

Can An Attorney Help?

A knowledgeable employment law attorney can determine whether the discrimination you experienced is illegal. At The Employment Rights Group, we consult with individuals about possible acts of workplace discrimination against them. We advise them about their rights, intervene with employers on their behalf and undertake litigation, including required arbitrations or mediations, when that is the best way to stop the discriminatory behavior by the employer.
