Nashville Workplace Discrimination Lawyers

Employees have the right to work hard and earn a living to provide for their families without fear of discrimination. Civil rights acts passed in 1964 and 1991 make it illegal for employers in Tennessee and around the country to discriminate while hiring, promoting, or conducting business. But despite these laws, workplace discrimination still occurs.

If you’ve been discriminated against at work, you may be eligible to receive compensation for wrongful termination, lack of career advancement, and psychological suffering. The Nashville workplace discrimination lawyers at Ponce Law are dedicated to standing up to companies that break the law by discriminating against employees and job seekers.

Types of Workplace Discrimination

There are many types of discrimination that employees may face in the workplace, such as:

  • Gender Discrimination
    Employees may receive unfair treatment because of their gender. However, state and federal law make it illegal for employers to discriminate against potential or current employees because of their gender for things like promotions, pay, job training, or other privileges of employment.
  • Racial Discrimination
    Some employees may find it difficult to get jobs or promotions because of their race, while others may receive unfair treatment from coworkers or managers. Race and skin color are protected employment categories, and employers who discriminate based on these factors may be in violation of the law.
  • Religious Discrimination
    Forcing employees to work on religious holidays, not providing reasonable accommodations for religious practices, and forbidding employees from wearing traditional religious clothing all may be forms of religious discrimination. Like gender and race, religion is a protected category in the workplace.

Other protected categories include national origin, pregnancy, citizenship status, age, disability status, marital status, and more.
