Even though it is illegal, discrimination in the workplace is a widespread issue to this day. Thousands of workers report discriminatory behaviors yearly, yet there is little accountability. Supervisors, managers and even colleagues regularly get away with discriminatory practices. For this reason, when you suspect discrimination, it is crucial to consult an attorney as early on as possible.
If you believe that you are currently the target of discrimination, reach out to attorney Scott Batey. At Batey Law Firm, PLLC, we always strive to secure the most favorable outcome available when dealing with employment law disputes.
Of course, not every negative interaction you have at work is indicative of discrimination. However, if you receive unfair treatment due to your age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex or disability, then you may have a strong claim.
As an employee, you have rights and protections under state and federal laws. As such, should you decide to file a workplace discrimination claim, your employer cannot retaliate against you.
