Workplace discrimination occurs when an employee suffers unfavorable or unfair treatment due to his or her age, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, disabled or veteran status, or other legally protected characteristics. This group could also include employees who suffer reprisals for opposing workplace discrimination or for reporting violations to the authorities, otherwise called "retaliation."
Lax & Neville LLP, has been successful in handling many employment discrimination claims over pregnancy, age, sex and HIV discrimination on behalf of investment bankers, traders, and other employees in the financial services industry. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
