What are Considered Protected Classes?
Both federal and state laws are meant to prevent workplace discrimination. These laws prohibit adverse employment actions based on the victim's membershp in a protected class.
We represent workers in the greater Richmond region who’ve been subject to discrimination due to their:
- Sexual orientation
- Family responsibilities
- Political beliefs
There are many ways that discrimination can show up in the workplace. Some forms of discrimination are harder to recognize than others. A skilled discrimination attorney can look at your specific situation to help determine if you have a case for discrimination.
Types of Workplace Discrimination
Some examples of workplace discrimination include:
- Reciving unfair pay
- Being skipped over for promotions
- Experiencing harassment from co-workers
- Lack of reasonable disability accomodations
- Wrongful termination
As a job applicant, you may also be discriminated against and not hired for a position for which you are qualified, simply because of prejudice.
Recovering Damages for Employment Discrimination
The law provides legal remedies for those who have been treated unfairly due to factors entirely unrelated to job performance.
Recoverable damages in a discrimination case can include:
- Reinstatement of their position
- Fair wages
- Emotional trauma
- Other changes in the workplace
A worker who has been discriminated against may be able to recoup any financial losses and seek other resolutions.
