Experienced Indiana Employment Discrimination Attorney
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against any individual with respect to his or her compensation, terms, conditions or privileges of employment because of that individual's sex, race, national origin or religion. There are also laws that prohibit discrimination in employment, whether hiring or promoting, based on disability or age, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), respectively.
Federal laws against employment discrimination apply to employers of 15 or more employees. However, the Indiana Civil Rights Act applies to employers with six or more employees. The difference between the two laws is that the individuals who have been discriminated against can sue their employers under the federal law, but only the state government can prosecute a discrimination charge under the state law.
If you have complained to your employer about employment discrimination and have been fired or punished in some other way, you may also have a claim for retaliation. In Indiana, you cannot be retaliated against for exercising a statutory right, such as complaining about being discriminated against or reporting discrimination. If you feel you have been the victim of retaliation, call the lawyers at Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC, today.
