Unequal Treatment Violates the Law
The way companies treat their employees can be a violation of federal anti-discrimination laws. Unfair treatment in any number of workplace practices and policies are illegal. Covered under these laws are the following aspects of employment:
Taking Action to Right the Wrong
In civil court, the guilty party is obligated to make right the wrong that it has done with discrimination in the workplace. With damages, an employee may get his or her job back, may be able to receive monetary compensation, or have attorney fees paid.
Before any of this occurs, employees must take action to seek justice. Step one is to talk to company management. Step two is to complain to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Step three is to file a lawsuit. Talk to one of our attorneys about what actions you need to take regarding your case.
