Workplace Discrimination Chicago, Hall Jackson and Associates P.C.

Employers are sometimes influenced by biases, leading them to make employment decisions that unfairly disadvantage employees or prospective employees of a certain protected classes. These discriminatory decisions are often based on: 

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • National Origin
  • Sex
  • Pregnancy Status
  • Disability
  • Age

You have a right to a workplace that is free from this sort of discrimination. There are a number of federal and state laws in place to protect you and other employees like you from being harmed by employers who discriminate. A few examples include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We help our clients navigate the system to press for their rights and bring employers to justice for discriminatory practices.

discriminationEmployment discrimination occurs when an employer makes an adverse employment decision based on an employee’s protected class. Protected classifications include race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, disability, and age. Federal and state laws prohibit employment discrimination and have some overlap in protected classifications. To state a claim for discrimination, you must adequately allege that you are a part of a protected class, that you were meeting the legitimate expectations of your employer, that you suffered an adverse employment action, and finally, that similarly situated employees that are not members of the protected class were treated differently than you. Federal laws include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
