Termination/Harrasment

Discrimination is the key to a wrongful termination or harassment case. 


So, what is discrimination under the law? 


It is illegal to treat an employee differently when it comes to any  aspect of employment, such as: 


hiring; 

firing;

 rate of pay;

 benefits;

 assignment of work load;

 enforcement of company policies;

and more.

 
Many cases start with the "EEOC Process," Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions.

The law protects employees from certain types of discrimination:  


Pregnancy;

Age;

Disability'

National Origin;

Race; 

Color; 

Religion; 

Sex;  

Genetic Information; 

Equal Pay; 

and more. 


Sometimes the discrimination is not so obvious, such as a policy that  applies to all employees but has the effect of punishing a certain  group of employees, such as employees over the age of 40, or employees  of a certain race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender,  disability, etc.

The law also protects against wrongful terminations due to:  

  • Family Medical Leave Act Request
  • Unpaid Wages Request
  • Workers Compensation benefits requests;
  • "Whistle-Blower" or complaints about illegal activity
  • Discrimination complaints to HR or Management
