Austin Discrimination Attorneys

Committed to Protecting the Rights of Employees

In our Constitution, there are several crucial principles that we as Americans are proud to say distinguish us from many other countries. As a democracy, we hold to self-evident truths that no matter a person’s skin color, religion, gender, age, or ability, that person is entitled to certain unalienable rights to work, vote, worship, marry, and live peaceably in our country.

Unfortunately, some individuals remain belligerently biased on account of their own ignorance or malice, and these people even go so far as to take out their prejudice on their employees. If you have been a victim of discrimination, it can be difficult to speak out because you fear the risks involved. This is why you should turn to our Austin discrimination lawyers, who can help you fight for equity in the workplace. Our team at Kennard Law, P.C. is committed to protecting the rights of every employee suffering from discrimination.

What is Workplace Discrimination?

When you have been discriminated against in the workplace, it means that your employer has treated you differently than your colleagues and coworkers, and that treatment is almost always harmful, embarrassing, and hurtful. Both federal laws and the state laws of Texas forbid such cruel bias, whether these stereotypes and prejudices involve discrimination against someone’s skin color, gender, nationality, language, pregnancy status, disability, religion, or any other distinctive category.

Discrimination could appear in the form of overt physical and verbal abuse and harassment, but often it also appears in more subtle manners. Being demoted from a previous position, deprived of benefits, denied of a request for leave or vacation, refused a promotion, or even excluded from key emails, meetings, and events can all be forms of subtle discrimination. Getting in touch with our knowledgeable lawyers is one of the most effective ways of finding out how to fight back against even the most hidden forms of discrimination.

Using the Law to Defeat Discrimination

No matter their status or how large their company is, employers simply cannot get away with treating others unfairly. Every employer who commits unlawful termination, defamation, retaliation, harassment, or violates your rights on account of discrimination is liable to be charged.

Our knowledgeable attorneys can defend your rights with both federal and state laws, using:

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 for discrimination against your national origin, ethnicity, language, race, religion, sex, or gender
  • The Age Discrimination Act for prejudicial distinctions made against your age
  • The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act for any bias against giving birth or taking maternity leave, or using leave to care for a spouse or older child
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for any discrimination of having a disability

With our powerful and aggressive support, we can give you the recompense and justice you deserve.
