Discrimination In The Workplace Can Take On Many Subtle Forms

If you believe you are being treated differently than your coworkers, you may have a right to file a discrimination claim. State and federal laws protect employees in all professions — from media executives, hospitality industry professionals, politicians, engineers, technicians, to lawyers, doctors and every job in between — from discrimination in the workplace.

Workplace discrimination can bring your career goals to a sudden halt. The struggle to advance your career may be more profound because of your employer's illegal discrimination. At The Amlong Firm, our founding attorneys have dedicated their careers to ensure yours remains viable. We are aggressive trial lawyers who think outside of the box to negotiate and litigate on your behalf to end workplace discrimination. Call our firm in Fort Lauderdale at 954-519-2235 to schedule a consultation to combat discrimination at your job.

Calling Out And Remedying Discriminatory Practices In The Workplace

If your work environment feels toxic, it could be due to discrimination. You have a right to a work atmosphere free of discrimination, but building your own case against your employer can be tough to accomplish without an experienced attorney in your corner. Examples of workplace discrimination that could be actionable include:

  • Not offering a new parent training or the necessary resources to "catch up" after they come back from leave
  • Pay gaps between men and women or employees of different races who are paid differently for the same work completed
  • An employee receiving unexpected job performance write-ups after returning from a leave of absence to care for an ailing family member
  • An employee experiencing sudden limits on work duties after requesting time off to attend religious holiday gathering
  • An employee not being allowed a break during the day to practice a vital religious tradition
  • Frequent changes to an employee's office location after their 50th birthday party card was circulated
  • Inequitable cuts to LGBTQ staff work hours
  • Offers to workers over 50 to accept early retirement incentives

The list could go on endlessly with many discriminatory practices overlapping. For example, employees of a certain race, religion or another protected class may be receiving fewer hours or fewer shifts than other employees and receive less pay than others for the same work.

Putting a stop to these harmful practices requires reporting it. Many professionals fear loss of their job if they do so. That is why it is critical to work with experienced employment law attorneys. At The Amlong Firm, our focus is helping you save your career. We will do what it takes to protect your rights to equal pay and treatment at your job. Our attorneys have a deep understanding of the law protecting your rights such as the Equal Pay Act (EPA) Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).

When you notice you — but not your coworkers — are being discriminated against, it is important to keep a written record of your experiences. Try to include the names of your coworkers who witnessed the same. Your record will be a helpful timeline of evidence for your discrimination case.
