Alabama Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Most states and the federal government have laws that prohibit private persons, organizations or governments from discriminating against employees due to age, disability, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, retaliation, gender, or sexual harassment. Individuals are protected from discrimination by employers under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the Americans with Disabilities in Employment Act, and other federal and state laws. Employment discrimination occurs when a person identifies you as belonging to a legally protected group because of a characteristic, and treats you unfairly, because you belong to a protected group. To prove employment discrimination, you must show the employer intended to treat you differently because of the characteristic. This intent can also be demonstrated if the employer has unfairly treated a lot of other persons with the same protected characteristic.
