Discrimination Attorneys in San Antonio

Knowledgeable Employment Lawyers

Here in the U.S., we Americans are proud to say that we support the right to have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all people. However, this has tragically not always been the case, as seen from our history of bloodshed and persecution. Many people have fought hard for greater equity, leading to important changes such as the Equal Pay Act of 1963 or the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Yet there are still many instances where employees face prejudice on account of their race, gender, religion, or sexuality.

It may seem like a nerve-wracking process to confront your supervisor if you have endured such employment bias, but that is why you can trust our discrimination lawyers in San Antonio to support you the entire time. At Kennard Law, P.C., we are determined to fight for your rights.

Classes of Discrimination in Texas

While there is no case for harassment of any kind in any workplace environment, there are certain classes that are particularly protected by both federal and Texas state laws. If you have been harassed physically or verbally on account of being in one or more of these classes, you can file for a discrimination claim. Even if the behavior against you is not as overt (such as subtle exclusion from office meetings, or lack of promotion after many years), you can file if you can prove that such treatment was made on account of discrimination.

Some examples of these classes which are specifically protected by law include:

  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity or race
  • Sexual orientation
  • Nationality
  • Marital status
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Pregnancy status

How to File a Discrimination Claim in the State of Texas

Once you have determined that the injustice you have suffered is clearly related to possessing one or more characteristics of these protective classes, it is time to take action. Our attorneys can help you collect, organize, and formulate a claim against the behavior you have suffered, utilizing crucial federal statutes such as the Americans with Disabilities Act or Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Then we can not only work together to control the damage you have undergone but to seek recompense for everything you have endured.

Contact us now at (855) 499-4514 if you are looking for real answers to your questions about discrimination in the workplace.

Taking Action Against Discrimination

We cannot tolerate injustice that occurs at work, or the vicious cycle will only continue.

To guard against such bias in the workplace, victims need to stand up to the perpetrators even when these bullies are their own bosses. If you have been a victim of such discrimination crimes, however, you can feel anxious that your employer might retaliate. When you have our discrimination attorneys in San Antonio by your side, you do not need to be anxious about standing up for yourself. Trust our firm at Kennard Law, P.C. to defend you with aggressive support.

Call us today at (855) 499-4514 or contact us online so that our dependable employment law attorneys can support you in vigorously retaliating against unjust practices at your work.
