The seasoned team of employment lawyers at the Almonti Law Group can help you.
Federal and state laws protect employees from employment discrimination. Generally speaking, employment discrimination occurs when a person or group of people is treated differently from other people or groups in the workplace because of membership in a legally-protected class or based on certain characteristics (for example, race, sex, gender, age, or religion).
No matter where you work, what you do for a living, or your background,
you’re entitled to a workplace free of discrimination, harassment, hostility, and illegal behavior. Because multiple anti-discrimination laws and multiple government oversight agencies may be involved in any given employment case, you’ll need help from experienced attorneys who know the laws and the agencies at play. The seasoned team of employment lawyers at the Almonti Law Group can help you determine what body of laws applies to your claim and guide you as to how to pursue your legal claims, first, with the appropriate government agency and then, if needed, in a lawsuit.
What Should I Do If I Believe I Have an Employment Discrimination Case?
Keep a log and detailed records of each specific incident that you believe was discriminatory or harassing. In your log, list any witnesses to discriminatory events or harassment, the name of your harasser, the dates of all events, and the specific facts and circumstances of each, including specific words uttered that were offensive, threatening, or otherwise harassing to you. Identify specific instances where people not of your protected class were treated differently than you.
You’ll have between 180 and 300 days after the last act of discrimination or wrongdoing, or from your termination or denial of promotion, to begin the process of filing a complaint with the applicable state or federal agency.
