Detroit Employment Discrimination Lawyers
Federal and state laws make it illegal to discriminate in the workplace on the basis of race, religious beliefs, national origin, age, gender, pregnancy and disability. Despite that fact, employment discrimination is a reality in some Michigan workplaces.
The effects of these types of discrimination go much further than just causing hurt feelings. A person who has been unfairly discriminated against in hiring, promotion or termination can cost the victim tens of thousands of dollars in compensation and benefits over the course of the victim’s career, in addition to emotional suffering.
