When employees of protected classes are treated unfairly by their employers, it creates an unlivable work environment. If you believe you are being subjected to employee harassment or have been discriminated against by your employer, a co-worker or manager, it is important to discuss your situation in an open and honest environment with a lawyer you can trust.

Understanding Employee Discrimination and Harassment
What constitutes employment discrimination and harassment?
- Employment discrimination includes employment disputes involving age discrimination, sex discrimination, racial discrimination, religious discrimination, pregnancy discrimination or discrimination based on relationship or association
- Employment harassment includes quid pro quo and hostile work environment claims involving racial harassment, sexual harassment or other employment harassment
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
