What Is Workplace Discrimination?

The discrimination laws in our country and the state of Texas have identified that there are certain classes of people that should be protected. Discrimination happens when someone from a protected class is treated differently because of characteristics like race, nationality, sexual identity, gender, age or disabilities. Anyone from a protected class deserves the same rights and opportunities as anyone else. Our employment law attorneys have handled a wide range of employment discrimination cases, including:

Workplace discrimination can take on a variety of forms, and it’s not always easy to recognize when it is happening. Discrimination scenarios can include someone getting passed over for a promotion because of their gender. It could be someone getting picked on because of their sexual orientation. It could also be an employee who has to deal with unwanted sexual advances and being sexually harassed by a boss. Any of these scenarios can certainly make your work environment uncomfortable and even hostile.
