Protection Against Workplace Discrimination

One of the most common employment law issues that the average American worker will encounter is unfair and unlawful workplace discrimination. The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has outlined and defined a number of federally protected classes that cannot be weighed negatively in workplace decisions.

You cannot be discriminated against due to one of the protected classes in matters regarding:

  • Interviews and applications
  • Hiring and firing decisions
  • Training opportunities
  • Promotion eligibility
  • Pay increases or decreases

The fact that the EEOC must exist is a testament to its own importance. If there were no federal regulations in place to prevent workplace discrimination, it would surely be far more widespread than it is today. To this end, it is crucial that you always report any discriminatory behavior at your job. But it is also critical that you report the discrimination in the correct manner.

Many employees make fatal errors in how they report unlawful discrimination. On the other hand, if done correctly, you can protect yourself and countless others that are struggling from the same illegitimate practices, or who would have struggled if nothing was done in reaction to your own mistreatment.

Mr. Wulbern takes each discrimination case with utmost seriousness, acknowledging that you speak for yourself and those who did not have the courage to speak up.
