Employment Discrimination Law

Federal, state, and local statutes, as well as public policy, define categories of employees who are entitled to equal protection in the workplace.

This includes protection for employees based on age, physical or mental disability, medical condition, work related injury, race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or pregnancy. The law also protects qualified employees who need a medical leave due to a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform his or her job, or to care for a sick family member, or to care for a new child.

Protection exists for whistleblowers, employees who raise concerns about or refuse to participate in alleged wrongdoing by their employer.

A complex interaction of federal, state, and local statutes create confusing filing requirements, deadlines and procedures which must be strictly followed before moving forward with a discrimination claim.

If your employer has treated you adversely, you may feel lost and unsure if you are protected under the law.
