Employment Discrimination Lawyers in Kane County
Lawyers Protecting the Right of Employment Discrimination Victims in Illinois
When you are forced to suffer poor treatment at work due to your gender, the color of your skin, or your religion, you are the victim of employment discrimination. There is no excuse for employers to allow such behavior to continue, yet it persists at levels that can be distressingly high in some areas and industries. At Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC, we recognize the rights and dignity of every person and believe that nobody should be forced to endure discrimination, and especially not in the workplace.
Common Types of Discrimination
Gender discrimination and racial discrimination have long been the most frequently cited types of employment discrimination. Women have had to endure sexually-charged workplaces, unwanted sexual advances from co-workers, and the struggle to obtain pay commensurate with that of similarly qualified men. Race has also been an issue in many workplaces, and discrimination on the basis of religion and national origin have become disturbingly prevalent in recent decades.
Employment discrimination encompasses much more than the loss of your job or an unfair denial of employment. You may have been subject to different work standards than other coworkers, penalized more harshly than others, or simply treated badly. Maintaining a hostile work environment can also be a form of employment discrimination. For example, a workplace that tolerates racist comments or crude and offensive humor may be liable for discrimination. An experienced employment discrimination lawyer can help you determine whether or not you have grounds to file a claim.
