The Laws that Protect You

Many times, victims of workplace harassment or discrimination do not say anything and they go about their days without speaking out against the crimes being committed against them. That’s because they are afraid of the potential repercussions that could occur. You may be afraid that you will be demoted, harassed or discriminated against even more, or even potentially lose your job. However, there are laws in place that prevent employers from legally retaliating against workplace victims. Over the years, we have used these laws to help our clients get the fair treatment they need and deserve while holding their abusers legally and financially accountable. Let us help you, too.

The federal laws and acts that protect your workplace rights include the following:

  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) – Protects women and men who work in the same establishment and perform essentially equal work from gender-based discrimination
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) – Protects employers and legally prohibits workplace discrimination based on national origin, sex, religion, color, or race
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) – Protects employees and people who are 40 years old, or older form age-based discrimination
  • Sections 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 – Protects qualified individuals with disabilities from employment discrimination, especially individuals who have disabilities induced by drug rehabilitation
  • Title I and Title V of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) – Protects disabled, qualified individuals from employment discrimination in the private sector, as well as local and state governments
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1991 – Protects employees from intentional workplace discrimination and provides victims with monetary damages
