State Law Prohibiting Discrimination
Florida state and federal laws protect people from discrimination in certain classes with specific characteristics. The Florida Civil Human Rights Act of 1992 makes it illegal to discriminate against individuals because of age, race, religion, gender, disability, pregnancy, national origin, or marital status. This law prohibits discrimination in the workplace.
Examples of Unfair Treatment for Those in a Protected Class:
- Wrongful termination
- Wage and hour violations
- Treating employees differently than others
- Sexual harassment
- Firing, refusing to hire, or taking adverse action against an employee
- Creating a hostile work environment
- Gender bias
- Denying disability or maternity leave
- Being passed over for a promotion
- Exhibiting favoritism over professional merit
Strengthen Your Claim
Standing up for your rights involves gathering evidence to support a claim proactively. When an issue arises, file a formal complaint with the company for a possible resolution. It is helpful when building an employment discrimination case to establish a pattern. Log each conflict or act of discrimination and retain copies of e-mails and responses, citing details such as the incidents’ location, date, time, and context. Collect contact information from witnesses who may testify if needed. Finally, contact LAR Legal Group to guide you through every step of the process and take legal action.
