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:
- 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.
What Are the 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:
- Ethnicity or race
- Sexual orientation
- Marital status
- 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.
Is It Worth It to Sue Your Employer?
The answer to this question depends on the reason you want to file a lawsuit against your employer. Do you want to sue them because you feel specific actions taken against you were unfair and you want justice? If so, then pursuing litigation might be the best route to hold your employer accountable and recover compensation for your trouble and the harm you've suffered.
Have you lost substantial sums of money or has your career trajectory been negatively impacted because your employer discriminated against you? Then filing a lawsuit against your employer will give you a chance to pursue justice and accountability.
Litigation can potentially expose what your employer has done to discriminate against you and can force them to change their workplace culture and practices to prevent similar injustice to others in the future.
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.
