Workplace Discrimination

Several laws exist to ensure the protection and fair treatment of employees in the workplace. Congress has taken great strides to eradicate discrimination, but it still exists. If you have been victimized at work, we encourage you to contact our firm for representation.

At Greenberg Burzichelli Greenberg P.C., we understand the challenges an employee faces when discrimination exists in the workplace. Often, he or she is hesitant to say anything for fear of retribution. It is wise to contact a lawyer as soon as discrimination becomes apparent. Our firm can work to ensure you are protected while fighting on your behalf.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is typically used as the benchmark to define discrimination in the workplace. Unfortunately, the changing world has seen a few more categories added to the list. Discrimination might occur based on an employee’s inclusion in several protected categories, including:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Sex
  • Disability
  • Familial status
  • Age

We have experience handling a wide range of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) discrimination claims. In fact, we have experience representing employees who have been discriminated against and labor unions that have been named as defendants in EEOC cases. Our knowledge of both sides of the dispute gives us a unique perspective on what the other side is looking for during the case. Our lawyers can adjust our case strategy to our clients’ benefit.

Discrimination Based on Union Membership

Many employees find that they are treated unfairly, barred from certain meetings or left out of essential communication based on their membership to a labor union. This is a clear form of discrimination, and our firm has a great deal of experience representing employees in this situation.
