Have you been retaliated against because you complained about such discriminatory treatment? Both federal law and the law of the State of Texas protects employees from being discriminated against for these reasons.
In addition, employers are prohibited by law from retaliating against employees who complain about unlawful workplace discrimination. It is important to note that discrimination can come in several forms.
An employer who denies an employee a raise or promotion, fires an employee, or refuses to hire a prospective employee due to that person’s race, gender, age, national origin, religious background, disability, or the fact that the person was pregnant may very well be in violation of the law.
An all-too-common kind of sex-based discrimination in the workplace comes in the form of sexual harassment. When an employee is subject to unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors in exchange for promotions or maintaining a job title, that employee is being sexually harassed.
