The United States, as well as the State of Florida, have laws in place that protect workers from being treated unequally and unfairly on the basis of belonging to certain protected categories. This means that you cannot be fired, punished on the job or be treated differently than your coworkers for things such as your gender, age, race, nationality, sexual orientation or any disabilities that you may have.
You may not be denied compensation or compensated differently than others because you are of a different race, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation or have a disability. You may also not be harassed or made to provide sexual favors in return for a promotion, additional compensation or other benefits. If you feel that you have been discriminated against or harassed by an employer, supervisor or coworker, and you have attempted to handle the issue through the proper channels with your employer with no resolution, you have other options available to you through the court system.
In cases where you feel that you have been discriminated against or harassed, it is important to seek the services of a competent legal professional to help you proceed with your claim. Your attorney can assess the details of your case, research local, state and federal laws that apply to your situation, and help you determine whether you have a valid legal claim. If you do have a claim under the law, your attorney will also explain to you what options you have for recourse.
