Discrimination and Retaliation

Discrimination

Employees are legally protected from unlawful discrimination. Unfortunately, not all companies and managers adhere to the law. If you are a victim of discrimination or retaliation, it is best to get an attorney involved as soon as possible.

The Furth Law Firm, P.A. believes in protecting employee's rights, as you can see by examining our past success. We feel our past success against companies will help us prepare for your case. We will fight vigorously to protect you and ensure you are treated fairly.

If you have been a victim of discrimination, call us today. Wrongful discrimination may include:

  • Age
     
  • Race
     
  • Gender
     
  • Sexual orientation
     
  • Religion
     
  • Disability
     
  • National origin
     
  • Pregnancy
     
  • Marital status

This does not represent a complete list of protected categories. If you feel you were mistreated, denied a promotion or terminated based on factors outside of your work performance, we encourage you to contact a lawyer at The Furth Law Firm, P.A.

Retaliation 

In many situations, doing the right thing or requesting considerations that are federally guaranteed can lead to your supervisor or company retaliating against you. Some of these protected situations can include:

  • Requesting accommodations specified in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
     
  • Requesting a leave of absence protected by the Family & Medical Leave Act.
     
  • Refusing to perform a task deemed to be illegal or unethical
     
  • Opposing or complaining about sexual harassment or discrimination

Retaliation can come in many forms, including:

  • Wrongful termination
     
  • Demotion
     
  • Denial of a promotion or other career advancement opportunities
     
  • Write-ups or performance improvement plans without proper justification
     
  • Use of schedule as a punishment tool

If you have been retaliated against in the workplace, contact an attorney immediately. Having a lawyer on your side evens the playing field.
