Discrimination

If you’ve been discriminated against in the workplace, a discrimination attorney located in Philadelphia can help you assert your rights.

Under the law, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee for:

  • Religion
  • Race
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
  • Age
  • Gender

Employment discrimination takes many forms, including:

  • Denying certain employees benefits or compensation regardless of their qualifications
  • Refusal to hire certain employees who are qualified for the position
  • Termination of an employee without due cause
  • Paying employees who perform the same tasks and are equally qualified different salaries
  • Refusal to offer promotions to all qualified employees

It is also illegal to retaliate against an employee for bringing up issues of discrimination to supervisors or authorities such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
