Types of Harassment & Discrimination

Our Prestonsburg labor and employment lawyers have handled cases of workplace discrimination that involved actions such as:

  • Refusing to hire;
  • Using unnecessary job qualifications to expunge minority group members;
  • Failing to promote;
  • Refusing to hire a person with disabilities even though they are able to do the job with reasonable accommodation;
  • Refusing to reasonably accommodate the religious practices or customers of an employee;
  • Advertising job positions in deceptive ways that exclude minority groups; and
  • Refusing to provide reasonable accommodations for a disabled employee who requests it.

Why Should I Hire an Attorney?

If you are involved in a dispute with your employer, your decision to hire an attorney or pursue the matter alone can have a direct impact on whether your employment rights are ultimately protected. In most situations, the company, especially a large corporation, will have more resources than its employees. The company may already have legal counsel or will hire its own team of attorneys to help limit their exposure and reduce the risk of litigation.

In these cases, you may need an employment lawyer who can protect your rights and improve your chances of filing a successful claim. It can be difficult to decide whether an employer’s actions are illegal, and speaking to our attorneys can help you make this important distinction. We can also address any concerns you may have about negative consequences at work and investigate potential wage and hour violations which may be creating hardships for you and your family.

Can I Be Retaliated Against for Filing a Complaint?

Retaliation against an employee who files an employment claim is strictly forbidden by law. Employers may not demote, reduce an employee’s hours, assign an employee an undesirable shift, reduce job duties, or give intentionally false poor performance reviews when a claim is filed. Employees may be entitled to additional compensation if their employer engages in retaliation.
