Danielle Croce v. Mercy Hospital
Case Number: 4:23-cv-396
Judge: John A. Ross
Court: United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (St. Louis County)
Plaintiff's Attorney: Kristine Shilt
Defendant's Attorney: James Paul
St. Louis, Missouri civil rights lawyer represented the Plaintiff who sued the Defendant on a job discrimination theory.
Job discrimination is the unfair treatment of someone in the workplace because of their race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, disability, age (age 40 or older), or genetic information.
There are federal laws that protect employees from job discrimination, including:
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
The Equal Pay Act of 1963
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA)
These laws prohibit discrimination in all aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, benefits, promotions, training, and discipline.
Job discrimination can take many forms, including:
Refusing to hire someone because of their race, religion, or national origin.
Firing someone because of their pregnancy or gender identity.
Denying someone a promotion because of their age.
Requiring someone to take a medical test that is not job-related.
Creating a hostile work environment based on someone's race, religion, or sex.
If you believe you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you can file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is a federal agency that enforces the federal anti-discrimination laws.
You can also file a complaint with your state's civil rights agency. Many states have laws that prohibit discrimination in employment that are more protective than the federal laws.
If you have been discriminated against in the workplace, it is important to speak up. You have rights, and you should not be afraid to fight for them.
