State and federal laws protect employees from being subjected to discriminatory treatment and termination in the workplace because of the employee’s gender, race, age, national origin, religion, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or disability. If you have reason to believe that you have experienced discrimination on the job, contact an experienced employment discrimination lawyer.
These laws also protect employees from sexual harassment in the workplace by supervisors, coworkers, or even customers. Employees have a right to stop discriminatory conduct in the workplace. If an employee tries to stop that conduct or notifies a supervisor that discriminatory conduct has occurred, that employee also has protection, under state and federal laws, from retaliation by the supervisor or employer. In fact, any whistleblower has protection from the law against retaliation by his or her employer.
