Fighting Against Employment Discrimination
Unfortunately, discrimination in the workplace still exists today. People’s biases and misconceptions about certain races, religions, genders, ethnicities, disabilities and age continue to impact their employment decisions. They not only impact hiring and firing decisions but also create disparities in deciding promotions, pay, discipline, performance reviews and more.
At Gibson Law, LLC, we help individuals in and around Cincinnati and Dayton who have been victims of workplace discrimination. We have devoted our practice to employment law and are committed to defending employee rights.
Protecting Individuals From Unlawful Biases
Federal and Ohio law protects employees from such unlawful biases and misconceptions by making it unlawful to discriminate against employees based upon certain protected traits. The law holds employers legally liable for making employment decisions based on a wide variety of characteristics, from color to genetic information. Some discriminatory behaviors employees might experience include:
- Hiring decisions based on age
- Unfavorable treatment based on a physical or mental disability
- Inappropriate workplace jokes about an individual’s national origin, race or religion
- Reduced advancement opportunities because a woman is pregnant or might become pregnant
- Employment decision based on gender stereotypes
Many of these forms of discrimination can be subtle. Often individuals who have suffered such behaviors worry that reporting them could result in retaliation. We are committed to helping individuals who have been victims of workplace discrimination protect their rights. We have the experience, knowledge and determination to help you find a resolution for all your employment law matters.
