Have Stereotypes And Biases Prevented You From Being Treated Fairly At Your Job?
If you work hard and are committed to your job, you should succeed; that’s the American way. Your skin, your race or your age should not matter. Unfortunately, workers across the country must often fight not just to prove themselves but also to combat their employer’s biases and prejudices. It is more than frustrating; it is illegal for your employer to discriminate against you.
Indianapolis and Charlotte workplace discrimination lawyer Rob Hunt represents employees who have suffered because of unlawful discrimination at their job. It is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on their race, gender, national origin, religion, pregnancy, disability or age. Work with an attorney who will fight for justice and who will fight for you.
Showing The Truth In Complex Situations
Discrimination cases are complicated because employers almost always will have an excuse for the employment decision at issue. It is the rare case where a supervisor or business owner tells an employee outright that they are too old or pregnant, or the wrong race, sex, or national origin for a job. This is called “direct evidence,” but most claims for employment discrimination are not proven this way. Instead, attorneys who represent employees most often rely on “indirect evidence” to prove an employee was treated less favorably than other co-workers. Indirect evidence involves comparing how you were treated with how other employees are treated under similar circumstances.
