Beckley Race Discrimination Attorney

Discrimination can take on many different forms in the workplace, each form making an employee's work environment unbearable. If an employer treats an employee negatively and differently from other employees based on a protected status, legal steps can be taken to correct the situation.

Bluefield Age Discrimination Lawyer — Fighting Discrimination In The Workplace

At the Law Office of Stephen P. New, we advocate for employees who are facing unfair and negative circumstances at work because of their status, including gender, age and race. These factors, which are protected by law, can influence the employee's treatment in pay, benefits, promotions, time off, classification and general treatment.

Gender

It is illegal for employers or companies to treat employees differently based on their sex. As long as the individual is physically able to perform the task, he or she must be given the same consideration for responsibilities, promotions and career development. If he or she is being passed over for these opportunities or being treated negatively and differently as a result of gender, there are steps that can be taken to hold the employer accountable.

Age

Age discrimination is common in the workplace, with frequent examples existing on both ends of the spectrum. A younger person may not receive a promotion he or she is qualified for and otherwise would have received. An older person may feel like he or she is being phased out with duties, territories and responsibilities being shifted to younger counterparts. If these circumstances are based on the age of the employee, discrimination is occurring.

Race

Race and ethnicity must not factor into how an employer treats the employee. We are skilled in identifying instances where the discrimination has occurred and showing trends where that employer treated individuals of different ethnicity poorly because of their race.

We will thoroughly review the circumstances of your claim. You will be provided an honest and clear understanding of where and how your rights have been violated. If there are grounds for legal action, we will prepare a case on your behalf, substantiating your claim against your employer.
