Employees have the legal right to be free of discrimination in the workplace; federal laws prohibit workplace discrimination including the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Equal Pay Act.
If you believe that an employer has discriminated against you on the basis of age, race, sex, color, religion, or national origin, please contact an employment discrimination attorney at Lundell Law Firm today for a consultation.
Proving Employment Discrimination
It is very rare that an employer or colleague will make a direct statement (i.e. I’m firing you because I want someone younger) indicating a discriminatory intent. When such statements occur this is known as direct evidence. The vast majority of cases however are based on circumstantial evidence known in the legal community as the prima facie case.
