Victims of Employment Discrimination can benefit from the services of a qualified Employment Discrimination Lawyer. Although this may seem like an obvious statement, many victims do not seek legal help out of fear of job loss or other employment retribution. Workers often tolerate discrimination or abuse out of fear of losing their job.

What is Employment discrimination?
According to the U.S. Department of Labor:
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, sex, or ethnic origin; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination against employees 40 years and older; and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of disabilities and requires that employers reasonably accommodate individuals with disabilities who can otherwise perform a job. As with other labor standards, independent contractors generally would not be covered by anti-discrimination laws.
In a recent case, B&H Photo settled a $3.2 million lawsuit to resolve racial discrimination and harassment claims by Hispanic employees in their Brooklyn, NY warehouse.
