Employment Discrimination

The manner and types of employment discrimination going on in America is shocking.

Scenic-60Under the laws enforced by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), it is illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or employee because of that person’s:
age (40 or older), color, disability, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, or sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy).
It is also illegal under federal law to retaliate against someone because he or she complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

In just about every state, most of these discriminatory employment practices are unlawful:

  • Age Discrimination
  • Ancestry Discrimination
  • Disability Discrimination (mental or physical disability)
  • Gender Discrimination
  • Gender Identity Discrimination
  • Racial Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination
  • National Origin Discrimination
  • Marital Status Discrimination
  • Military Service Discrimination
  • Sexual Orientation Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment, and
  • Retaliation for opposing such forbidden employment practices.

If you have been discriminated against at work, you have a right to file a claim for damages. Thomas O’Donohue represents employees and former employees in Employment Discrimination matters.
