Are you experiencing discrimination at work? You have options.

Experiencing discrimination and other types of inappropriate treatment in the workplace can be overwhelming and frustrating. Texas employees who believe they are facing discrimination of any kind do not have to face it alone – they have the right to fight back. It may be appropriate to file a civil claim.

If you are the victim of discriminatory treatment from your employer or others in your workplace, there are options available to you. You have the right to a workplace that is free from this type of treatment, and you may have grounds to move forward with legal recourse. Discrimination is unacceptable and has no place at work.

How do you know if you are a victim?

Often, victims are unsure if what they are experiencing qualifies as discrimination. It is sometimes difficult to know if a person is simply acting rude or if he or she is trying to undermine you in certain ways. There are both state and federal laws in place that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, race, religion, national origin and other factors.

It can come in many different forms, but some of the most common ways an employer can discriminate against workers or potential applicants for a job include:

  • Refusal to hire a qualified candidate
  • Passing over deserving workers for promotions
  • Unexplained terminations or demotions
  • Paying you less than others for doing the same job
  • Unnecessarily disciplining workers
  • Denying certain workers from having necessary training
  • Verbal or physical harassment 

It is not always easy to prove discrimination, but that does not have to stop you from taking necessary legal action. You can start by alerting the appropriate authorities at work, including your supervisor, upper-level management and others. If this is not effective, you can take other steps, such as filing a complain with the appropriate state authorities and the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission. 

You do not have to fight alone

It is not easy to deal with discrimination on your own. Fortunately, you do not have to to. You may find it beneficial to start with a complete assessment of your case in order to understand the legal options available to you.

An experienced workplace discrimination attorney can help you pursue the appropriate course of action, including filling out complaints and moving forward with a civil claim. As soon as you think there is a problem, you will benefit from having an experienced attorney on your side.
