What Do I Need to Prove to Win My Employment Discrimination Case?

If you file an employment discrimination case, you will need to prove that your employer treated you differently because you belong to a protected class. This can include your race, ethnicity, sex, gender, age, or religious beliefs. Most employment discrimination cases are proven with circumstantial evidence that shows the plaintiff belonged to a protected class and that the reason the employer used to fire or deny their labor rights was just a pretext for discrimination.

What Types of Employment Actions Are Covered by Discrimination Laws?

Anti-discrimination laws cover most aspects of employment, including hiring, pay, promotions, and job termination. Both anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation laws ensure an employer’s decisions are made based on merit and not an employee’s membership in a protected class.

Ways Your Employer May Be Violating Your Rights

Many workers assume that their employer understands and complies with labor and employment laws on a regular basis. In reality, there are numerous businesses that are violating employee rights every single day. While some companies do this intentionally, others simply make mistakes. Either way, if they are breaking the law, they are engaged in illegal activity and their intentions do not really matter.

Ultimately, it is up to the worker to ensure that his or her rights are not being infringed upon. Here are some common workers’ rights violations to watch out for in your workplace:

  • Misclassification of employees
  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Keeping inaccurate records
  • Restricting employee speech
  • Failure to provide a safe work environment
  • Presence of discrimination
  • Sexual harassment from employers or co-workers
  • Termination for illegal reasons
  • Retaliation against those who file claims for unlawful practice
  • Failure to provide benefits stated in the employment contract
