Discrimination on the basis of sex, age, race, color, religion, disability, or national origin is not only wrong, it is illegal. There is an extensive and well-established body of law regarding the wrongfulness of discrimination in the workplace. Unfortunately, this type of activity continues to occur quite frequently; creating victims out of innocent employees for no other reason than the prejudices of an unscrupulous employer. If you have been treated unfairly as a result of any of the above characteristics, there is a good chance you are entitled to compensation. This compensation may consist of money damages for harm you suffered, money damages as punishment for your employer, or reinstatement or other kinds of specific relief.
While we would like to think that bigotry and discrimination in the workplace is a thing of the past, we understand that all too often employees can become victims of unacceptable employer prejudice. Knight Employment Law takes special pride in assisting victims of workplace discrimination, whatever form that discrimination takes.
