Protecting Employees From Workplace Discrimination
Both the state of Texas and the federal government have laws in place which are designed to eliminate workplace discrimination. Unfortunately, discrimination still occurs in the workplace far too often. If you believe that you have been the victim of discrimination, it is important to seek help from lawyers experienced in handling these types of cases.
At the Law Office of Jose G. Gonzalez, our attorneys have more than 35 years of combined experience representing employees throughout the Rio Grande Valley and South Texas. We are committed to protecting the rights of workers and holding employers accountable for illegal actions. To schedule an initial consultation, call us at 956-731-4324.
While most employees may be fired at any time for any reason, the firing cannot be done based on an employee’s membership in a protected class. The same holds true for an adverse action taken against an employee, including ongoing harassment, refusal to promote or hire employees who are members of a protected class and other discriminatory actions.
A person is considered to be a member of a protected class if they experience discrimination based on their race, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability. Furthermore, in Texas most public employees are protected against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender expression as defined by federal law. If you believe that you have been discriminated against based on any of these reasons, you may have a strong claim against your employer.
