Discrimination & Harassment
It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate or harass an employee on account of the employee's age (over 40), sex, pregnancy, race, color, national origin, ethnic background, disability, sexual orientation, military status, religion, or because the employee took a medical or family leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, among other reasons. Employers may not terminate, demote, refuse to hire, refuse to promote, set pay, or affect any other terms and conditions of employment based on the above characteristics. Merrick Law Firm LLC represents many employees who have been subjected to various types of discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
