Ex-Disney worker claims racial discrimination got her terminated

Disney World is generally associated with happiness and great memories for those who visit, but it may not always be as wonderful for its employees. A black woman who worked at the Florida theme park is alleging that she was the victim of racial discrimination.

Disability discrimination claims declined in 2014

Having a disability is something that many Florida residents have had to come to terms with over the course of their lives.

If an individual believes that he or she has been discriminated against, he or she may be able to take legal action.

Florida has second highest number of discrimination complaints

It is often considered a great unfairness when someone is judged based on his or her age, ethnicity, religion or other factors.

In some cases, parties may face employment discrimination due to personal aspects of themselves and miss out on opportunities.

Pregnancy should not lead to employment discrimination in Florida

For many Florida women, becoming pregnant does not necessarily mean that they want to give up their jobs.

If accommodations can be made, many women are happy to continue working under the restrictions. Unfortunately, some pregnant workers could become the victims of employment discrimination.

The Americans with Disabilities Act has made the work environment a safer and fairer place for disabled employees.

Unfortunately, what this means is that some caretakers suffer workplace discrimination simply for taking care of a family member.

When people in Florida are mistreated at work on the basis of gender and race, it is natural for them to feel violated, but, fortunately, they have the right to seek to hold their former employers accountable.

The African-American woman claimed that she was terminated because of her gender and race.

Multi-million dollar verdict in employment discrimination case

Many people in Florida are familiar with the distinctive AutoZone sign. Regardless of the company's reputation as a distributor of car parts, one out-of-state woman has alleged that the company fosters a culture that prevents women from being promoted to store managers.

Former coach files workplace discrimination suit against school

A former coach at a Florida university recently filed a workplace discrimination suit against the institution.

In the ideal Florida workplace, employers would take the time to accommodate workers who have disabilities or other reasons to need special adjustments.
