Representing Employees in Discrimination Cases

A workplace often provides the greatest amount of diversity in a person's daily life. This can provide opportunities to enjoy one's own unique characteristics as well as the characteristics of others. Unfortunately, not everyone views a diverse workplace as beneficial.

The attorneys at Shulman Kessler believe that you are entitled to a colorblind and gender blind workplace, a workplace with no bias or discrimination. More than causing hurt feelings or involving grudges, employment discrimination occurs when employers discriminate, or allow discrimination, on the basis of a protected category, including:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Sex/gender
  • National origin
  • Sexual orientation
  • Genetic information

If you experience harassment or discrimination based on these protected categories, you may have a claim for compensation from your employer. If you believe that you were fired due to a form of employment discrimination, it is important to speak with a qualified employment law attorney promptly.

Employers have the right to hire and to fire employees if the reasons do not constitute discrimination. However, when we take a case on behalf of employees, we hold employers responsible to give fact-based answers why people were fired or were not hired.
