Experienced In Bringing Forth Employment Discrimination Claims In Tallahassee And Beyond

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and subsequent federal laws such as the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), it is illegal for employers to discriminate based on:

  • Gender
  • Race or color
  • National origin or ethnicity
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • Age
  • Pregnancy

Employment discrimination takes many forms, including unequal treatment in hiring, layoffs, job duties, promotions, disciplinary actions, and termination.

Harassment on the basis of the above categories, including sexual harassment, is also a form of discrimination. You may have a compensable claim if you were subjected to unwelcome sexual advances or if subjected to a hostile work environment based on another protected characteristic, such as race or religion.

Employer retaliation is also actionable, such as a worker who is disciplined after complaining about a racist supervisor or a woman who is terminated after reporting sexual harassment.
