Fighting Back Against Discrimination In The Workplace
In Missouri, workers have the right to get hired to a new job, earn promotions and otherwise work without being the victim of discrimination from their employer. Ralston Kinney, LLC, is here to help people throughout Kansas City, Missouri, enforce their right not to be discriminated against at work.
State and federal laws prohibit workplace discrimination based on several factors, such as:
- National origin
- Disability status
The purpose of these laws is to make sure all of us have a fair chance to compete in the workplace without having to deal with discrimination.
What Does Workplace Discrimination Look Like?
Workplace discrimination can take several forms. An employer might illegally discriminate in hiring practices by only giving consideration to applicants of a certain race or age range. In other cases, workers will be passed over for promotion for reasons other than qualifications, with the promotions going to less qualified candidates. Or perhaps when a company goes through layoffs, only members of certain groups seem to be the ones to lose their jobs.
