Discrimination Claims & Defense,Tampa Bay
Lubliner Law Firm is a skillfully prepared employment discrimination attorney in Tampa Bay who is ready to assist with discrimination claims and labor and employment matters. If you are wondering if you have a discrimination claim, it is wise to seek the advice of counsel because in many cases, there are time sensitive rules that must be followed with regards to some discrimination claims.
You Cannot be Discriminated Against Because of:
- Sexual orientation
If you believe you have been discriminated against for either race, religious affiliations or beliefs, your age, sex, gender or sexual orientation, or if you are disabled and have incurred damages as a result of your employer’s failure to abide by the laws with regards to discriminating against employees with disabilities, you may have a case. The only way to know is to consult with a labor and employment lawyer. If you think you have been fired because you are pregnant, you could have a sex discrimination case. If you believe that you have been retaliated against for taking leave, you are protected under the FMLA.
About Age Discrimination
Age discrimination claims are supported by the Federal law which prohibits most employers from discriminating against job applicants as well as employees solely on the basis of age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act(ADEA) protects people 40 years of age and older from age-based discrimination. It can apply to the following areas:
- Hiring, Firing, Layoffs
- Compensation and Benefits
- Conditions of Employment
Again, consulting with a Tampa Bay Labor and Employment lawyer is the first thing you should consider if you have been a victim of discrimination.
Filing a Discrimination Claim
Did you file an employment discrimination claim with the EEOC? If you have received a notice of Dismissal and Notice of Rights from the EEOC , you have 90 days to file a lawsuit in a court of law against your employer. Federal Sector Discrimination Cases are handled somewhat differently. If you have questions about your claim, or have not filed a claim and wish to schedule a free consultation with a labor and employment attorney at Lubliner Law Firm, please call (813) 381-5670 or message us from our contact page.
