What qualifies as workplace discrimination?

The experienced attorneys at Siri & Glimstad are evaluating claims from people who say they have been victims of employment discrimination.

Workplace discrimination is when an employee is treated unfairly based on their age, religion, ethnicity, disability, gender or race. The federal government has Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which makes discrimination in employment unlawful, and each individual state has their own law against this as well.

Employers are not legally allowed to make decisions or treat their employees differently based on certain protected statuses. Some examples of those protected statuses include:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Age
  • National Origin

It is illegal for employers to discriminate against or harass employees based on these statuses, and legally they are obligated to investigate any complaints of discrimination in the workplace.

How An Attorney Can Help

If you have been a victim of employment discrimination, contact us to have an experienced employment attorney evaluate your claim and see whether you have a case. An attorney will be able to tell you if you have a good claim and, if so, whether you should file in state or federal court.

As part of compensating for unlawful discrimination an employer may be instructed by the court to compensate you for lost income or damages, or restore an employee’s position.

At Siri & Glimstad, there is never any cost upfront to you for our representation. We get paid only if we win for you.
