The Majority of discrimination cases

The Majority of discrimination cases
There are many types of discrimination that occur in the workplace, however, the majority of the cases that are brought to our employment law attorneys here at Moore & Associates generally involve age discrimination, race, gender, and sexual harassment. What do each of these look like? We will explain that below.

• Age Discrimination- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines age discrimination as treating an applicant or employee unfairly or less favorably simply because of his or her age. The law prohibits discrimination in any area of employment whether it be hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, benefits, or any other condition of employment. Aside from treating an employee unfairly because of their age, it is also unlawful for an employer or even a fellow co-worker to harass a person because of their age.

If you believe you are the victim of age discrimination and you work in or near the city of Houston, Texas, Moore & Associates wants to help determine if you have a viable case on your hands. If you feel you didn’t get a promotion because of your age, our Houston labor and employment law attorneys will get to the bottom of the issue.

• Race/Color Discrimination- This happens when someone is treated unfavorably in the workplace because of their race or skin color. If an employer doesn’t hire someone who is more qualified for a job than the next or is subjected to hearing racial slurs thrown at them, this may be a legitimate race discrimination case for our employment and discrimination attorneys here at Moore & Associates in Houston, TX.

• Sex Discrimination and Sexual Harassment-  One of the more common type of discrimination cases our Houston labor law attorneys take on involve sexual harassment matters. If an employer or co-worker has made any sort of sexual advance, sexual comment, or engaged in physical behavior you didn’t elicit, then you may be the victim of sexual harassment. More women than men are victims of sexual harassment in the workplace and often times, male supervisors or someone with a higher position take advantage of their role by forcing themselves onto female employees.

Although every act of sexual harassment is to be taken seriously, some acts may call for further action. For instance, if an employer forces themselves onto an employee and engages in a sexual act without the other person’s consent, this is considered as rape and is punishable under Texas law. If you feel as though you have been physically or verbally harassed in your place on employment, the sexual harassment attorneys at Moore & Associates are here to provide you with the support you need.
