It is disgraceful that colleagues at work would treat a co-worker as less than a complete human. If you have been discriminated against at work because of how you looked when you were born, we truly feel for you. Just when we think we have heard it all, another call will come in to our office describing a situation that physically shakes us.
While we are a professional, experienced and skilled group of employment litigators, occasionally someone reaches out to us that has experienced horrific discrimination at work. As a firm, we rally around these moments and commit ourselves as a group to protect and advocate for the injustice perpetrated against them. If the client can not afford the consultation, we will reduce the rate just so we can hear their story and see if we can use our full resources to advocate on their behalf.
Federal and state laws protect against workplace discrimination, but candidly, not to the extent that we would like to see for all Americans. Title VII is one of the landmark federal protections against discrimination, however, it is more than 50 years old. It pre-dates cell phones, WiFi, landing on the moon and even the Supreme Court’s decision striking down a Virginia law prohibiting interracial marriages. Its interpretations have been widely varied in its application, historically by white male judges, so it is a landscape fraught with inequities.
Nevertheless, The Noble Law Firm stands ready to defend and represent employees facing severe and intolerable discrimination in the workplace. Federal law prohibits employers discrimination under penalty of law based on:
- Religious Affiliation
- National Origin
- Marital Status
