The attorney and staff work to stay up to date with ever-evolving federal and state laws and regulations.

Many people experience unfair treatment on a daily basis. It is always humiliating. Discrimination on the job is a violation of Florida and federal law.

Not all actions you may regard as discriminatory constitute employment discrimination, however. It usually takes the help of an experienced employment law attorney to evaluate your case and advise you if you have a case and how to proceed.

 

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employment discrimination is discrimination based on your protected status, which includes:

 

  • Your race or color

  • Your gender

  • Your age, if you are age 40 or older

  • Your disability status

  • Your religion

  • Your national origin

 

Be on the lookout for behavior that may constitute retaliation. Under Florida and federal law, you may have experienced retaliation for reporting discrimination, even if the discrimination claim did not yield anything in an investigation by your employer or in evaluation by your supervisor. Contact an employment law attorney who can help you determine if your right to report discrimination has been impaired.

If you are terminated without cause or believe you have been discriminated or retaliated against, please call Robinson Law Office PLLC for a free consultation. 


Let us help you determine if you have a claim against your employer.


Retaliation


State and federal labor laws protect employees from retaliation. It is illegal for your employer to harass or demote you or otherwise retaliate against you for filing a complaint or suit for discrimination or harassment. If you have blown the whistle on your employer, for reporting fraud.
