Employment Discrimination

Our jobs are important to all of us, but you shouldn't have to endure discrimination or demeaning behavior from your supervisors or co-workers in order to keep working. If you are facing discrimination or harassment, including sexual harassment, whether you are a man or a woman, you should discuss your case with an experienced attorney who can help you protect your rights.

Various state and federal laws prohibit discrimination in employment practices such as hiring, firing, disciplining, compensating, or promoting employees. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against you on the basis of race, color, age, gender, nationality, disability, or religion. Employers are also prohibited from retaliating against you for pursuing your rights and fighting back against employment discrimination, or for "whistleblowing"--i.e. disclosing work-related information in order to protect the general public.

If you believe that you were harassed or denied a job or a promotion because of your race, age, gender, nationality, disability, or religion, rather than being evaluated fairly on your abilities and experience, please contact Ronai & Ronai, LLP today. We may be able to pursue compensation on your behalf. If you were fired for improper reasons, we may also be able to get you reinstated. And, by pursuing your rights, you will also be helping others who would otherwise be subjected to similar treatment.

On the other hand, employers may have non-discriminatory reasons for making certain decisions; if, for example, a job requires a particular qualification, an employer may be acting reasonably in demanding that employees have that qualification. Because discriminatory actions are not always obvious, it is crucial that you discuss your situation with a Ronai & Ronai LLP attorney as promptly as possible if you suspect discrimination. You will get an objective opinion from a professional who knows this area of the law, who can help you take the proper procedural steps, and who can negotiate and advocate on your behalf.
