You Deserve Respect At Work

If you're being discriminated against in the workplace on the basis of a protected status, you can seek legal redress. Discrimination happens when you're treated differently — in a negative way — because of some manifestation of who you are. Certain types of discrimination are prohibited by law, including:

  • Gender, pregnancy or sexual discrimination
  • Race, national origin and religious discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Age discrimination

If you believe that you are being discriminated against in the workplace, contact the Law Offices of Louise A. Herman in Providence at 401-400-3839 to discuss your case with an experienced attorney.

What Does Discrimination Look Like?

In the workplace, discrimination can take many forms. If you've been fired or passed over for a raise or promotion because of your age, this is a form of discrimination. If your employer does not provide reasonable accommodations for a documented disability, this is also discrimination. Getting a demotion or getting fired for being pregnant or on the basis of assumed characteristics of your gender is yet another type, as is prominently displaying religious messaging of a particular faith. If you have questions about whether what you are experiencing qualifies as discrimination, talk to a lawyer to get the clear legal perspective you need.
