Employment Discrimination

Do Not Allow Unscrupulous Employers to Discriminate Against You

In the United States, there are federal laws in place to protect Americans from discrimination by employers based on race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, age, citizenship status, and genetic information.

Additionally, most employees in the State of Michigan are also protected from discrimination based on marital status, AIDS/HIV, height and weight, or a misdemeanor arrest record. Illinois supplements federal protections by protecting employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, military status including unfavorable discharge, arrest records, domestic abuse victimization, orders of protection status, and lack of a permanent mailing address or using a shelter as a permanent mailing address.

Unfortunately, unscrupulous or uninformed employers violate these laws every day, whether in the hiring process or through paying active employees less, denying them promotion, or firing them based on one of the aforementioned protected classes.
