Description: West Palm Beach, Florida civil rights lawyers represented the Plaintiff who sued the Defendant on a job discrimination theory.

"Job discrimination employment law is a body of law that prohibits discrimination in the workplace. It protects employees and job applicants from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, disability, age (40 or older), or genetic information.

Job discrimination can occur at any stage of the employment process, including hiring, firing, promotions, compensation, and benefits. It can also occur in the form of harassment or retaliation.

There are a number of federal laws that prohibit 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
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008

In addition to federal law, many states and municipalities also have laws that prohibit job discrimination.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work, you may have a legal claim. You should contact an experienced employment lawyer to discuss your options.

Here are some examples of job discrimination:

An employer refuses to hire a job applicant because they are over the age of 40.
An employer pays a female employee less than a male employee for doing the same job.
An employer fires an employee because they have a disability.
An employer sexually harasses an employee.
An employer retaliates against an employee for reporting discrimination.

If you have been discriminated against at work, you should take the following steps:

Keep a record of all communications with your employer, including emails, letters, and text messages.
Document any incidents of discrimination, including the date, time, location, and what happened.
Report the discrimination to your supervisor or HR department.
If you are not satisfied with the response from your employer, you can file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or a state or local agency that enforces anti-discrimination laws.

You may also want to consult with an experienced employment lawyer to discuss your legal options."
