Everyone has the right to work, and federal law states that no one can be discriminated against when seeking employment or while employed. While many companies across the United States follow the law, others display unethical practices that can be harmful as well as hurtful to employees. When an employee chooses to discriminate against an employee, it is advisable to hire a workplace discrimination lawyer. Hiring an attorney can help to protect a person from unfair employment practices and lets the company know that their treatment of employees will not be tolerated.
Workplace discrimination can happen in many forms and is often not seen except by those who are experiencing the problems. Many employers will use non-direct methods to discriminate against an individual or a group. Examples are punishing those who cannot work overtime with more work during regular business hours or placing unreachable quotas for those with disabilities knowing they cannot make them. More direct forms of discrimination come in the form of saying or doing something to someone publicly or directly harassing a person and involving other coworkers. Sexual harassment is also considered to be workplace discrimination and can also be tried in court as a civil matter.
A workplace discrimination lawyer can discuss the problems with clients and determine if there are grounds for a lawsuit, in many cases, especially those involving sexual harassment there is often two separate claims that need to be filed. Corporations have legal teams to protect their interests and to quietly handle claims of discrimination, but they are solely about protecting the company’s public image. In cases where discrimination has been severe or caused harm, it is best to have a lawyer working for the individual and protecting their interests, not the company. In many cases involving discrimination, it is not always easy to prove, and corporate attorney uses this to their advantage, seeking the advice of separate legal counsel protects others who are too afraid to come forward for fear of retaliation.
