Discrimination Lawyer

It is illegal for employers to harass, fire or refuse to hire an individual for reasons other than that person's ability or behavior. Any employment decision may be considered against the law if said decision is based on a person's:

These decisions apply not just to hiring, but also to actions taken once a person already has a job. For example, if a woman is doing well at her job, but is then passed up for a promotion when she gets pregnant, this could qualify as discrimination. Similarly, if an older worker is fired and then replaced with a younger worker, this could qualify as age discrimination. At Cable Gallagher, our knowledgeable employment law attorneys can study your situation to determine if you have a viable case.

Identifying Unfair Hurdles

Sometimes, discriminatory practices are "baked into the cake," as it were, effectively disqualifying classes of people for jobs before they get the chance to apply. For example, specific recruitment practices or tests (including medical tests) may be discriminatory, favoring one group of people over another. These types of discrimination may be more difficult to prove, but it doesn't mean they are not there, or that they are not valid. If you believe you have been discriminated against in an employment setting, it is important to speak with a lawyer who can examine the facts of your case and give you a sense of your options. Our committed discrimination attorneys at Cable Gallagher are ready to help.
