Discrimination on the Job
One of the key tenets of American society is the belief that everyone is entitled to the same opportunities. Unfortunately, discriminatory hiring practices and prejudicial treatment by employers mean that some people, regardless of how hard they work, will face unfair hurdles on the road to success.
Pennsylvania employment attorneys McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C. represent clients from a range of backgrounds who have been the victims of discrimination on the job. Employment discrimination can range from systemic wage inequality to individual harassment. A variety of statutes at the federal, state and local levels offer legal protection for individuals who have been:
- Passed over for employment or advancement
- Paid less than others in a comparable role
- Denied a promotion or opportunities for training
- Marginalized on the job or limited to menial, undesirable work
- Reprimanded for speaking out against unfair treatment
- Terminated or forced into retirement
- Harassed on the job
As a result of their race, gender, age, religion, sex or sexual orientation.
Employment discrimination cases can be difficult to prove — in a workplace environment, prejudice can be subtle and slow to reveal itself. To protect your interests, your options may include filing a formal complaint with either the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission (PHRC). If that fails to resolve the issue to your satisfaction, it may be necessary to take your employer to court. While many worry about the effect a drawn-out trial will have on their life, a lawsuit can be the best way to draw attention to the issue and possibly avoid others suffering the same discrimination you did.
