How To Stand Up Against Intolerance
It is a shame that intolerance still rears its ugly head. Many people find themselves the victim of discrimination in places they should expect to be safe, like a classroom or the workplace. It can leave you feeling like you have no options to hold those people accountable.
Here at Stempien Law, PLLC, you can find an attorney with the experience and compassion necessary to help you seek justice after your rights have been infringed. Attorney Stempien has earned millions of dollars for his clients as compensation for their discrimination, and he knows how to help you seek justice.
What You Should Know About Discrimination
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a government organization that is dedicated to protecting the rights of employees across the nation. Their work has specified the categories a person is legally protected from discrimination. These categories include:
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity
- Nation of origin
- Disability or genetic information
All of these classes of people are protected from retaliation or punishment in the workplace. The law cannot always stop the discrimination, but the law does give you the ability to hold those responsible for the discrimination accountable. To do so, you need an attorney who will protect you and fight for your claim. While lawsuits are generally about money, Eric’s approach to discrimination claims is not just about making money, it is also about sending a message to those who discriminate: this will not be tolerated.
