Dealing with difficult people at work is never easy. This is especially true when you are dealing with a less than stand-up boss. In fact, studies show that people quit because of undesirable bosses and managers more than any other reason. Work conditions can become even harder when a boss or manager is discriminating against employees. What is worse, these kinds of situations can be hard to prove. However, if you feel that you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you can hire an employment lawyer to help you understand your rights and gather the proper evidence.
What Constitutes Workplace Discrimination?
Employment discrimination takes places when an employee or applicant is treated unfavorably because of race, gender, skin color, religion, age, disability, or national origin. Employment laws extend beyond hiring and firing. Discrimination on the job can happen to workers on the job as well. Getting passed up for a promotion due to these factors, for instance, is an example of workplace discrimination. Harassment that makes the working environment hostile is another example. The problem arises when you want to take the issue higher. Gathering evidence of the ill treatment or unfair acts can be difficult. This is when an employment lawyer can be helpful.
Hire an Employment Lawyer
Your employment lawyer will hold your management liable for actions that violate employment laws. They can provide help from proving discrimination took place to helping you understand various claims that can be brought against the employer. Your lawyer will have a strong understanding and expert knowledge of the laws and regulations. Some of the claims that an employment lawyer can help you with include:
ADA - Americans with Disabilities Act
FMLA - Family Medical Leave Act
ADEA - Age Discrimination in Employment Act
