Avoiding And Correcting Discrimination On The Job
Employment discrimination is one of the greatest challenges in the working world for many employees. It may negatively impact workers during the hiring process, on the job or in layoffs. Whatever your struggles are, the Keegan Law Firm, LLC, is ready to help you find answers and remedies.
We Are Ready To Advise You And Fight For Your Rights
Typical areas of employment discrimination affecting workers in various ways include:
Age discrimination: Were you and others near your age coerced to leave your company, only to be soon replaced by a new, younger crew? Were you routinely passed over for promotions and leadership positions when younger workers were not? Our employment law attorneys can evaluate your case.
Racial discrimination: You may have seen one too many of your colleagues of a different race move ahead of you despite your strong skill set. While it can be hard to prove, the feeling and realities associated with racial discrimination are unmistakable to those affected.
Religious discrimination: Have you been ridiculed for wearing symbols of your religious identity? Worse, have you been asked to do things that go against your conscience although your employer overlooked available reasonable accommodations for your faith?
Sex and gender discrimination: You may be in an occupation that is more typically held by someone of the opposite sex (a male nurse, a male elementary teacher, a female welder or a female construction superintendent, for example). In this position, you may experience ongoing discrimination or you may have difficulty being hired. Seek legal counsel.
Pregnancy discrimination: Georgia has no state law forbidding discrimination against employees on the basis of pregnancy. However, at the federal level, The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) “forbids discrimination based on pregnancy when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, such as leave and health insurance, and any other term or condition of employment.” Source: The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Our employment lawyers have much insight and direction to offer Georgians who have been discriminated against in violation of laws such as:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)
- The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
- The Georgia Fair Employment Practices Act
- The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA 38 U.S.C. 4301-4335)
