Discrimination in the workplace is the unfair treatment of an employee by the employer based on prejudice of any kind. Employers cannot discriminate while hiring, demoting, promoting, firing or doing any other action that can result in the unfair treatment of an employee.
The Orlando discrimination lawyers of LaBar Adams have helped numerous individuals recover monetary damages from unscrupulous employers. Our discrimination attorneys have helped right the injustice suffered by many at the hands of such employers.
The law makes it illegal to discriminate against an employee for many reasons. For example, the law makes it illegal to discriminate against an employee because of that person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, handicap, marital status or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because he or she complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. These are known as “protected classes” and there are numerous other “protected classes” under the law.
The law forbids discrimination in every aspect of employment to include hiring, firing, fringe benefits, pay, job assignment, promotions, layoffs, training, and any other term or condition of employment.
