In a perfect world, there would be no discrimination of any kind. People wouldn't look at each other and judge them based on a single characteristic or detail. Things would be simpler, and there would be a vast number of critical issues that wouldn't threaten people's safety and well-being. However, we don't live in that perfect world. Utopia continues to escape us.
Maybe someday we can achieve that perfect world, but in the meantime we have to deal with what we have. And that means that when an employee is discriminated against based on a host of issues that should not be used to judge their potential, employment, and work rate, then the victimized person needs to be protected and their interests and must be upheld.
Fellow employees may discriminate against you because of your religion, or your race, or your ethnicity or country of origin. They may also discriminate against you because of your gender, sexual orientation, disability, or age. The discrimination could come in the form of harassment, loss of employment and promotion opportunities, or other insidious behaviors and actions. Your employer, too, could allow hostile or discriminatory practices to continue, despite their clear and illegal concepts.
At The Law Office of Michelle Cohen Levy, P.A., we can provide discreet consultation to those who have been discriminated against -- followed by passionate advocacy for your rights and your claim. If you are in need of legal help in the wake of a discriminatory act by your employer or a fellow employee, consult with an experienced attorney immediately.
