It’s illegal for employers to penalize you due to your race, sex, gender identity, age, or other protected status. What happens if you think you’ve been discriminated against?

Employees across the country have endured workplace discrimination for decades. And today, despite strong laws that make it illegal, it still happens.

But what exactly counts as discrimination at work?

Workplace Discrimination: In A Nutshell

In Massachusetts, it is against the law for your employer to treat you differently or unfairly because of:

Your race
Your national origin
Your age
Your sex
Your religion
Your disability
Your sexual orientation
And more

An employer can’t take harmful actions – such as refusing to hire you, firing you, demoting you, or passing you over for a promotion – because of your identification with any of those protected groups. Your employer also can’t take those harmful actions if you complain about discrimination. We are employment discrimination experts when it comes to dealing with work discrimination cases.

Figuring out if you’ve been discriminated against can be tough, but our attorneys have been handling discrimination cases for decades. If you think you have been discriminated against, let us know. We can help.
