Workplace Discrimination

The cases of employees filing employment-related discrimination claims have rapidly increased over the past few years. The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) indicates that employees filed 76,418 discrimination-related charges in 2018 alone. These discriminatory charges are based on characteristics including:

  • Marital status
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Race
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Disability

Employers must understand the requirements under discrimination laws at the federal, state, and local levels. From pre-employment and throughout the employment process, employers must follow the non-discrimination provisions of the law. Here are some aspects of business that employers should be prepared to explain and defend when facing a lawsuit:

  • The hiring process
  • The testing process
  • Employee transfers
  • The handling of investigations of complaints of harassment and discrimination
  • Employee layoffs
  • Determination of employee compensation
  • Issuing of employees’ job titles and descriptions
  • Termination process

Our attorneys are well-versed in defending organizations that face workplace discrimination claims that may arise from the aforementioned processes.
