Workplace Discrimination Is Punishable By Law

Have you experienced discrimination on the job? Are you being treated differently, more harshly than others because of your race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, disability or a pregnancy? This can make your daily grind a living hell. Fortunately for employees working in Houston, Texas there are laws that protect us against discrimination.

Discrimination usually stems from biases steeped in the company’s culture and reflected when it comes to hiring, giving promotions, disciplining, demotions, and/or termination decisions. If you are a victim of discrimination in the workplace you have every right to file a claim against your employer.

What Are Protected Classes?

What Do You Need To Prove?

For a successful employment discrimination claim, you must be able to prove that the decisions against you were wrong or unfair and that they were based on factors not related to your ability to perform. In legitimate cases, this proof is fairly easy to come by. If you believe you have a solid case against your employer, The Murphy Law Practice, PLLC is ready to start on your claim. Please note, there are deadlines associated with your claim. Time is of the essence.
