Discrimination

Employment discrimination is unfair treatment based on an impermissible factor. Generally recognized impermissible factors include an employee's-

  • race
  • color
  • age
  • sex
  • national origin
  • religion
  • disability, or
  • pregnancy status
  • Additionally, certain types of workplace harassment, retaliation, or bullying may violate laws prohibiting employment discrimination.

A myriad of federal, state and local laws prohibit discrimination in the workplace. As a result, it is often difficult for an employee or applicant to know if his/her employer's conduct is actually discriminatory. The Blackburn Law Firm is experienced in helping employees understand their rights. We offer traditional legal representation or more discrete guidance and coaching via our Employee Advocate Program. Please contact us if you believe you have been subjected to discriminatory treatment by an employer.
