EXAMPLES OF WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION

The term workplace discrimination refers to a variety of unlawful conduct that involves an unequal treatment of employees on the basis of legally protected traits. Traits such as race, religion, and national origin may not serve as a basis of adverse employment actions because these characteristics are afforded protection pursuant to the U.S. Constitution. Another consequence of discrimination is known as a “hostile work environment”. The state-specific laws of New York, along with Federal Law, proscribe practices that involve discrimination on the grounds of a person’s gender, such as sexual harassment, pregnancy and sexual orientation discrimination.

LAWS AGAINST HARASSMENT & DISCRIMINATION

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act is one such Federal Law, which is enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Other laws intended to protect workers from discrimination are also within the scope of the EEOC’s regulatory authority. One of the initial requirements for workers to bring a discrimination claim is to timely file a claim with the EEOC. The experienced EEOC claim attorneys at Philips & Associates can assist in mediating your discrimination claim, negotiating a settlement, preparing your case for trial and throughout the appeals process as well.
