Definitions of Workplace Discrimination
The law clearly outlines elements of age, race, and gender discrimination. Because it may be difficult to prove discrimination occurred in some cases, it is important that you keep records and documents detailing the behavior and acts. The more evidence you have, the stronger you case becomes.
The definitions of workplace discrimination are as follows:
- Age discrimination: Usually involves older employees. If you have been shut out from a promotion or replaced by a younger, less experienced employee (who is paid less and whose health insurance costs are less), you may be the victim of age discrimination.
- Race discrimination: Usually involves national origin. If you have been treated unfairly because of physical characteristics, language, culture, or ancestry, you may be the victim of racial discrimination. Certain questions on an application can reveal bias, as well as refusing to promote someone because of their race.
- Gender discrimination: Usually involves women. If you were not paid the same wages for the same position or for performing the same tasks as men, you could be a victim of gender discrimination. Other examples of gender discrimination include not being offered executive positions or not being given the same advancement opportunities as your male co-workers, despite having equivalent credentials.
Bill Marder Only Requires Payment If You Recover Money
If you have an age/race/gender discrimination case, you will need to file your lawsuit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission within the proper statute of limitations. Taking action can often stop these discriminating and harassing behaviors from reoccurring. Because employment lawsuits can be complicated, make sure you have an experienced lawyer by your side to help guide you and protect you from any employer retaliation. To make legal representation more accessible for clients, Bill Marder only requires payment for legal services and costs if he recovers compensation on your behalf.
