Macomb County Employment Litigation
Your Right to a Macomb County Employment Lawsuit
For most states, employment is an agreement between the employer and employee in which the employee is working “at will”. This means that both reserve the right to terminate the employment agreement at any time. Discrimination, however, is always illegal, and an employee who was wrongfully terminated due to discrimination should pursue an employment lawsuit in Macomb County.
There are several practices an employer can engage in a discriminatory way:
- Failing to promote
- Bias in hiring
- Terminating benefits
- Terminating employment
Discrimination can also be verbal or physical harassment if improperly focused on the employee’s race, sex, age, or gender. Most states protect these characteristics and others through employment laws, making it illegal for organizations to discriminate against people in these ways. A successful discrimination employment lawsuit must prove that one or more of these protected characteristics was discriminated against.
The intent of the employer to discriminate, or the act itself, can also be demonstrated if the employer has repeated this behavior in the past to other persons with the same characteristics. An experienced Macomb County employment attorney can help you pursue proper legal action.
