profile on Smith Mullin

Are you a victim of employment discrimination?

Everyone deserves respect and freedom from ill treatment in the workplace.

If you feel you have been the victim of discrimination due to gender, race, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age, Smith Mullin can help you to understand your rights.

Employment discrimination can occur in unequal pay, unfair job assignments, failure to promote, unfair criticism, unlawful firing or a hostile work environment. Retaliation for complaining about discrimination can also occur in those ways.

You should never tolerate workplace discrimination, a hostile work environment or retaliation. Smith Mullin fights for employees who speak out about workplace injustice to protect their rights and make sure they do not suffer retaliation after they report a violation.

Types of workplace discrimination:

Age Discrimination: Involves an employer treating an employee differently because of his/her age.

Disability Discrimination: An employer must treat employees with disabilities fairly.  AN employer cannot discriminate against an employee with a disability or retaliate against an employee who seeks a reasonable accommodation to a disability.

Examples of reasonable accommodations include making existing facilities accessible; job restructuring; part-time or modified work schedules; acquiring or modifying equipment; changing tests, training materials, or policies; providing qualified readers or interpreters; and reassignment to a vacant position.

Gender Discrimination: It is illegal to discriminate against women or to force them to work in a hostile (sexist) work environment. Paying women less, treating them differently, giving them unfair job assignments,  giving them biased job evaluations, and refusing to promote them are ways that employers engage in illegal discrimination.

Race or National Origin Discrimination: Employers may not treat  job applicants or employees unfavorably because they are African-American, or from a particular country or part of the world.

Sexual Harassment: Learn More

Retaliation:  Employees who stand up to discriminatory conditions at work can face retaliation for their actions, which can disrupt and severely damage their professional and personal lives.
