Discrimination at Work in Houston, Texas

Racial Discrimination Murphy Law.jpg

 

Discrimination in the workplace not only hurts, but it is ILLEGAL for your employer to subject you to:

  • race discrimination;

  • gender discrimination ;

  • national origin discrimination;

  • age discrimination;

  • religion discrimination;

  • disability discrimination;

  • pregnancy discrimination;

If your employer discriminates against you for one or more of these reasons, you may be able to pursue a workplace discrimination claim against your employer. Discrimination usually stems from biased employment practices in hiring, promotion, disciplining; demotion; and/or termination decisions.

For a successful employment discrimination claim, you must be able to prove, not only that the decision against you was wrong or unfair but that it was based on one of the characteristics listed above (race, gender, etc.) as opposed to a legitimate business reason.

Also, the law protects an employee who complains about discrimination from retaliation from his or her employer.
