Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 articulates an intent to protect employees from discrimination on the job. Additional laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) have been passed in subsequent decades, expanding employees' rights to protection from illegal discrimination.
In particular, employers cannot discriminate against employees on the basis of age, disability, perceived disability, race, color, national origin or sex; pregnancy or marital status; Vietnam-era veteran status or National Guard service.
Unfortunately, these well-intentioned laws are often abused by employees seeking retaliation against employers. Going beyond protection of employees, these laws are used as clubs against businesses.We Offer In-Depth Consultations for Employers Facing Discrimination Lawsuits
