Workplace Discrimination Law in Indianapolis, Indiana
What Is Employment Discrimination?
Employee discrimination law involves federal, state and other laws that protect workers like you. Your employer may not treat you differently because of personal characteristics unrelated to your job performance and duties. You have a right to equal protection and due process.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects you from discrimination based on many personal classifications. These include race, skin color, national origin, gender, religion, family medical history, disability, age and more. In many instances, these may also include sexual orientation, political affiliation and marital status. Other laws that protect you include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).
Are You Being Treated Differently?
Your employer may not discriminate against you due to a protected classification, such as those mentioned above. This includes hiring, promoting, being discharged, awarding raises, accessing to benefits and other workplace issues. If your employer, manager or company is treating you unfairly based on a protected classification, our team is ready to help you defend your rights.
