It is against the law for companies to treat employees differently because of certain characteristics – including their
- Sexual Orientation
- National Origin
- Medical Condition
And other “protected classifications.”
These laws are a result of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If an employer discriminates, an employee can be entitled to relief, including front pay, back pay, reinstatement, and pain and suffering (or emotional distress). For more information, reach out to Baker Curtis & Schwartz, P.C. today.
