Federal And Montana State Laws Prohibit Discrimination And Workplace Harassment
Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination against certain protected classes. Job applicants, employees and former employees are protected against discrimination in the workplace based on:
- Color, race or national origin
- Gender, sexual orientation or gender identity
- Disability or vaccination status
- Marital status
- Age or disability
If you have been demoted, denied a job, had your wages or hours cut, or otherwise treated unfairly because of your status in a protected class, you may have a claim for workplace discrimination.
What Does Workplace Discrimination Look Like?
Workplace discrimination can come in a lot of forms, and can be blatant or subtle. Some examples of workplace discrimination include:
- Inappropriate or illegal questions asked in an interview
- Derogatory or discriminatory language displayed in your workplace
- Verbal or sexual harassment
- You are not paid equally or overlooked for promotions
There is no litmus test for prejudice, but there are ways that an attorney can demonstrate that discrimination was the driving force behind the treatment you have suffered while at work. Our attorneys are prepared to gather the evidence need to prove that your rights were violated.
