Discrimination

In the U.S., employment discrimination occurs whenever an employer or its representatives adversely single out employees or applicants on the basis of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and religion as well as others. Employers can’t discriminate against you in any aspect of employment such as: hiring and firing, compensation, assignment, transfer, promotion, recruitment, testing, use of company facilities and fringe benefits. If you believe you are a victim of discrimination at your place of employment do not hesitate, contact us.

Another type of discrimination occurs when an employer has established rules such as an employee hand book, but selectively chooses to enforce a violation of these rules against one employee, but not another. If you lost your job or suffered a demotion, based on this type of conduct, contact us and let us begin to evaluate our claim.

Sexual Harassment

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that tends to create a hostile or offensive work environment. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that occurs in the workplace. Persons who are the victims of sexual harassment may sue under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C.A. § 2000e et seq.), which prohibits sex discrimination in the workplace.

Wrongful Termination

Many employers violate public policy when they terminate or discipline an employee. Public policy is the laws of the respective state. If you believe that you were not dealt with fairly, contact us at Taubman Law for a free analysis.
