Hartford Employment Discrimination Lawyer
Discrimination in the Workplace
Being subjected to discrimination in the workplace not only negatively affects the way an employee is made to feel while on the job, but it can also substantially affect his or her job performance. Discrimination is unacceptable in all forms, and federal and state laws are in place to protect all workers from this unlawful behavior.
This can include discrimination against:
- Sexual orientation
Discrimination occurs when an employer makes judgments about an employee based on that employee's personal characteristics. Such discrimination could involve hiring, wrongful termination, promotion, comments made to the employee, and wage and salary considerations, to name a few. If proven, an employer can be sued for damages for this offense.
