Discrimination is always difficult to endure. When it happens in the workplace, it can become unbearable. Everyone should enjoy the right to go to work every day and earn a living without having to be subjected to comments about their personal characteristics. It is crucial that all employees in Ohio understand their rights. One of those rights is to not face discrimination from employers, co-workers, and anyone else they come into contact with while at work. If you have been the victim of workplace discrimination, call our Delaware, OH discrimination lawyers to learn more about your legal options.
There are several protected classes outlined in both federal and state law. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects employees against employment discrimination based on their race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, and national origin. The Supreme Court of the United States has also determined that members of the LGBT community are also considered a protected class under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Although the Civil Rights Act includes certain protected classes, there are others, as well. The Age Discrimination Act of 1975 protects employees over the age of 40 from work discrimination, while the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from discriminating against employees with disabilities.
While these laws do afford several protections to employees, they are also extremely complex. A Delaware, OH discrimination lawyer can explain the law and how it applies to your case.
Sometimes, discrimination is obvious. Employers or co-workers may make racial slurs or may make lewd comments toward you, which are clearly types of discrimination. In other cases though, discriminatory practices are much more subtle. If you have suffered from any of the following scenarios, you may need to speak to an employment discrimination lawyer.
Sadly, these are just a few of the situations employees face every day. If you feel as though you are being treated unfairly due to personal characteristics, you need to let an attorney review your case.
