Employees may not be discriminated against based on certain bases, including their disability, pregnancy, age, gender, sexual orientation, sexual identity, race, religion, color, national origin, genetic information, or military status. Employees who are members of protected classes are protected from employment discrimination.
The following types of discrimination at work are unlawful: 1. disability; 2. pregnancy; 3. age; 4. lgbt; 5. gender; 6. race; 7. religious; 8. discrimination based on color or national origin; 9. discrimination because of genetic information; and 10. discrimination based on military status. You may find information about these types of discrimination by visiting our practice areas or contacting our Ohio Employment Discrimination Lawyers today.
Whenever an employee believes they are being treated less favorably than their coworkers on any of the above bases, then they should speak with our Ohio employment attorneys who handle employment discrimination cases. If the discrimination is severe and pervasive, then the work environment may qualify as a hostile work environment. In addition, if any adverse action (termination, suspension, cut in pay, failure to promote, etc) is taken based on an employee’s disability, pregnancy, age, gender, sexual orientation, sexual identity, race, religion, color, national origin, genetic information, or military status, then you may have an unlawful discrimination or wrongful termination case.
If you believe you have been harassed or discriminated against on any of the protected bases, then you should speak with our Ohio employment attorneys. Our experienced Ohio employment discrimination lawyers are happy to guide you through administrative (with the EEOC or OCRC) and legal processes. Our Ohio employment attorneys look forward to the opportunity to speak with you to address the hostile work environment and/or discrimination occurring at work.
