You Are Protected from Discrimination
Most employees are hired on an at-will basis, meaning they can be terminated for any reason. Under federal and state protections, however, it is a violation of employment law to terminate employees or take adverse employment action on the basis of qualities that could identify someone with a protected class.
Federally protected class qualities can include:
- National origin
While sexual orientation is not a protected class under federal or Pennsylvania state law, a significant number of municipalities in Pennsylvania make sexual orientation a protected class, including Philadelphia. Philadelphia also prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity.
Legal Options Available
If you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you have legal options that can help you recover financially for the loss of income that resulted from the discrimination. If you were wrongfully terminated, for example, you may be able to receive back pay for the time you missed and become reinstated to your position.
You should discuss the options available to you through negotiation, litigation, and trial with your discrimination lawyer in Philadelphia.
