You Do Not Have To Endure Workplace Discrimination
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.
Know Your Employment Rights
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.
In Michigan and across the U.S., employers cannot use your status as a member of a protected class as an excuse to:
- Refuse to hire you
- Discipline you without cause
- Terminate you from your job
- Deny you training
- Reject you for a promotion
- Pay you less or demote you
- Harass you at work
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.
