Employment Discrimination Law
Facing discrimination at work is a humiliating, discouraging, and dehumanizing experience. Illegal discrimination can result in a lifetime of pain and suffering, as well as financial loss when the discrimination results in lower wages or loss of career advancement opportunities. Federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees, and employers face penalties for illegal discriminatory practices.
Federal law prohibits many types of discrimination, including:
- National origin
- Equal pay/compensation
- Genetic information
- Sexual harassment
When an employer illegally discriminates against you, the consequences for your life, career, and confidence can be significant. The law offers recourse for victims of employment discrimination. If your employer has illegally discriminated against you, it may be possible to recover compensatory and punitive damages. Punitive damages are sometimes awarded to punish an employer who has committed malicious or reckless acts of discrimination.
