Workplace discrimination can take many forms.

Common Examples Of Discrimination
The law prohibits employers from discriminating against employers based on their age, race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, religion or disability. Discrimination may take many forms, including:
- Denying benefits that are available to other employees
- Denying equal pay
- Excluding employees from advanced training programs that are available to others
- Refusing to hire a worker based on a discriminatory reason
- Engaging in severe harassment, which causes an employee to quit
Instances of discrimination may not always be immediately clear. An employer may attempt to state another reason for taking adverse action against an employee. However, if the underlying reason was based on discrimination, the employer may be held liable. Attorney Klawitter will thoroughly review your allegations to determine if you have a viable claim based on the actions of your employer, including supervisors, human resources employees and other coworkers.
