It may be hard to believe that discrimination in the workplace is still a problem in our country. But, even a cursory glance at local or national news headlines is probably enough for our readers in North Carolina to see that this problem doesn’t seem to be near an end. When workplace discrimination occurs, employers need to be held accountable.
Discrimination in many forms
When people think about discrimination in the workplace, race or gender discrimination are probably the main types that come to mind. Indeed, discrimination claims based on race or gender are common, but there are other types of discrimination that can occur in the workplace as well. For example, age discrimination is becoming quite an issue as the workforce in America overall gets older. Discrimination based on a person’s religious preference or national origin can occur in the workplace as well. Even disability discrimination has been known to occur. In short, there are many ways in which workers in North Carolina might be subjected to discriminatory practices in the workplace.
But, victims of discrimination should know that they may have legal options to explore when workplace discrimination occurs. Pursuing a legal claim against your employer may be an option.
At our law firm, we understand that victims of discrimination in the workplace may be feeling angry and are looking for justice.
