Macon-Bibb County Employment Lawyers
Handling Discrimination & Harassment for Individuals in the Workplace
Anyone who has lost their job understands how devastating that termination can be. Those feelings tend to be magnified tenfold when an employer treats a dedicated employee differently based on traits such as her race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, or physical abilities. Our Macon-Bibb County employment law attorneys can help you to face these workplace matters.
There are many ways that employees can be harassed or discriminated against in the workplace. However, there are a number of state and federal laws that have been enacted to protect employee’s rights and prohibit employers from engaging in unfair treatment. This area of law is one that continues to grow and expand, especially with regard to the prohibition of discrimination based on a worker’s sexual orientation and gender identity.
