Employment Discrimination

According to the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in all instances of employment, an employer must treat an employee equally with respect to their gender, age, race, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, and medical conditions. The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution limit the power of the Federal and State Government to discriminate. These Amendments also guarantee that individuals will receive equal protection of the law. The law does not tolerate any form of discrimination.

Employment discrimination is a type of bias that usually impacts an employee economically. The employee may not receive a promotion or he/she may get demoted, suspended, terminated, or lose his/her hard earned benefits. While these instances of discrimination are prohibited by the state of Missouri and the Federal Government, they may not be enough to constitute legal action unless a variety of other factors are taken into consideration.

Discrimination has become a very misunderstood term in most workplaces. Being a member of a protected class is not enough for a discrimination case. Protected classes include, but are not limited to: minorities, females, people with mental and/or physical disabilities, or people over 40 years of age.

Due to the trickiness of discrimination laws, it is not wise to take legal action alone. If you feel you have suffered from employment discrimination, you should consult with one of our qualified attorneys at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C..
