Employment discrimination can take many forms
Simply put, employment discrimination exists when one person is given different treatment than another person with the same qualifications based only on their gender, race, age (if they’re 40 or older), religion, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, or gender identity and expression.
When we use the phrase “different treatment,” we are referring to any decision that’s related to a person’s conditions and terms of employment. Some of the most common examples including the assignment of work and projects, being hired or fired, getting raises or benefits, being promoted or demoted, or negotiating a leave of absence.
What you can expect from discrimination action
When a person is the victim of discrimination in the workplace, taking legal action can help them in numerous ways. It can help them to have a sense that justice has been done. It can undo the discriminatory job actions that happened. One example is when a person is wrongfully terminated and is then rehired due to a discrimination lawsuit. When a person doesn’t have equal pay, they could get a raise, or if a person was passed over for training they could then get that training.
These lawsuits can often come with monetary compensation. This is often the case when there’s no remedy within the company. For example, if a person was unfairly fired then they may not want to return to their job. No matter what the situation is, one thing is clear: You need the best attorney to help you. At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we are standing by and looking forward to talking to you. Contact us at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
