How do I know if I have been the victim of employment discrimination?
I was asking myself the same question not long ago. How do I know if I was discriminated against? What exactly counts and doesn’t count? Well, it turns out there is an actual list in the law.
Employment discrimination is a crime when you’re discriminated against due to being a member of a “protected class”. Actually, the law lists those protected classes. You can’t be discriminated against due to your race, gender, age, sexual orientation, sexual preference, religious belief, and more. This means that if you were fired or passed on for a promotion due to one of those reasons, you were the victim of employment discrimination.
Of course, the details of the cases get complicated, so it’s better to get an employment discrimination lawyer free consultation from a law firm like Alexander Morrison + Fehr, LLP if you want to know if you have a strong case. Especially since some types of discrimination can be very hard to prove.
