Discrimination and wrongful termination

Did you know there are both federal and state laws in place that make it illegal for employers to discriminate against workers?

Discrimination in the workplace can be on the basis of religion, race, gender, age, national origin, disability, and pregnancy. In other words, there are many reasons why an employer may discriminate against an employee.

Many people don't realize just how big this problem has become. From Michigan to every other state, there are times when an employer makes a poor decision and discriminates against an employee for one reason or another.

In some cases, workplace discrimination goes well beyond hurt feelings. For example, it's possible that a person could be discriminated against and fired as a result. In this case, the worker must deal with both the personal and financial aftermath.

If this happens to you, it's possible that you could miss out on thousands of dollars in income and benefits in the future. And as noted above, this often comes along with emotional suffering as well.

If you have reason to believe you've been the victim of workplace discrimination, you must stand up for your rights. You must know which steps you can take to fight back in an attempt to make things right.

Our law firm has helped many Michigan workers who have been wrongfully terminated from their position. If you find yourself dealing with a similar situation, you need to learn more about your rights. This is the only way to ensure that you take the right steps in the future, hopefully making things better for you and your family.
