Employment Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace or when applying for a position is not always overt or obvious. In some cases, victims stay silent for fear of losing their jobs or missing an opportunity for employment. At Robinson & Clapham, we are employment law attorneys who are dedicated to protecting the interests of employees who have been discriminated against in the workplace.

Know The Types Of Employment Discrimination

Our lawyers have over five decades of experience fighting for the rights of employees and pursuing compensation for workers harmed by illegal employment discrimination. Employers may not discriminate against applicants or employees based on their:

  • Race — Employers who discriminate based on race, including refusing to interview someone because of their race, are in violation of federal law.
  • Sex/Gender — Employers who use an applicant or employee's sex or gender as the basis for hiring, firing or promoting may face legal action.
  • Age — Federal law protects workers 40 years of age or older from discriminatory hiring, firing and promoting practices.
  • Religion — Employers must provide reasonable accommodations to employees so that they may practice their religion unless it causes the employer undue hardship.
  • Military status — The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) provides employment protection and other benefits to veterans and employees who choose to serve their country in the military.
  • Disability — The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of a physical or mental disability in employment.
  • National origin — Employers may not discriminate based on an applicant or employee's first language, accent, country of origin, ethnic or cultural background, or nationality
  • Sexual Orientation — If you have faced discrimination based on your sexual orientation, we can help you.

We are committed to offering personal attention and practical solutions to workers in employment discrimination claims. Our employment discrimination lawyers are zealous advocates for employees who will fight for their rights.
