Case Number: 2:22-CV-2486

Description: Kansas City, Kansas civil rights lawyers represented the Plaintiff who sued the Defendant on a job discrimination theory.

"Job discrimination law is a set of laws that protect individuals from being discriminated against in the workplace on the basis of certain protected characteristics. These characteristics vary depending on the law, but they typically include race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, and genetic information.

The most important job discrimination law in the United States is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. It applies to all employers with 15 or more employees.

Other important job discrimination laws include the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which prohibits pay discrimination based on sex; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, which prohibits age discrimination against individuals who are 40 years of age or older; the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which prohibits disability discrimination; and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, which prohibits discrimination based on genetic information.

Job discrimination laws are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is a federal agency that investigates and resolves claims of employment discrimination.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you can file a complaint with the EEOC. You can also file a lawsuit in federal court.

Here are some examples of job discrimination:

An employer refuses to hire you because of your race.
An employer fires you because of your religion.
An employer pays you less than your male counterparts for doing the same work.
An employer denies you a promotion because of your age.
An employer refuses to hire you because of a disability.

If you have experienced job discrimination, you should contact an attorney to discuss your legal options."
