Asserting Your Rights Against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation
Under state and federal law, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on that employee’s membership in a “protected class.” Discrimination in the workplace includes refusal to hire, failure to promote, lay-off, termination, unequal pay and unfair discipline. You may have a claim if you have been discriminated against based on any of the following:
- Sexual harassment
- National origin
- Mental or physical disability
- Marital status
- Receipt of public assistance
State and federal statutes also prohibit retaliation by an employer against an employee who in good faith reports a violation or suspected violation of local, state or federal law (“whistleblower” laws).
Wilking Law Firm can act to protect your rights under numerous laws adopted by the U.S. Congress and the North Dakota Legislature, including:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- North Dakota Human Rights Act (“NDHRA”)
- Americans With Disabilities Act (“ADA”)
- Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”)
- Family Medical and Leave Act (“FMLA”)
The dynamics of your case will of course depend greatly on your specific circumstances and industry. Mr. Wlking has the experience to handle effectively any type of issue, including academic disputes about tenure or promotion.
