You feel that you’ve been discriminated against at work, and now you don’t know what to do. You want to keep your job, but at the same time, your workplace has become an uncomfortable environment for you. With a lawyer on your side, you can get assistance with your employment discrimination issues.
What Is Employment Discrimination?
Employment discrimination occurs when an employee experiences discrimination at work. Their colleagues or their boss might discriminate against them.
Discrimination based on your identity, like your sex, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or pregnancy status is just one type of discrimination. You may also experience improper questioning about your medical or genetic information, face retaliation because you reported your boss or colleague to HR, or your colleague or boss may be harassing you because of your identity. If your workplace won’t reasonably accommodate you based on your religion or disability, this could count as discrimination as well.
How a Lawyer Can Assist You
An experienced lawyer will let you know whether or not your situation qualifies as discrimination. They can help you gather any evidence and build your case, since it can be very complicated to do this yourself, and file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. During this time, when you’re already stressed out, your lawyer can take the burden off of you and handle your situation. All you’ll need to do is hire a lawyer with a solid track record working with clients who have dealt with discrimination in the workplace.
