Federal, State and Local laws offer numerous protections for people who have encountered discrimination.
Since the 1960s our society has made significant progress in establish laws to combat discrimination. Unfortunately, discrimination continues in employment, housing, social and other settings. Federal, State and Local laws offer numerous protections for people who have encountered discrimination based upon race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disabilities and sexual orientation. Federal, State and Local laws also prohibit sexual harassment or misconduct. Other laws provide protection for persons with disabilities or medical conditions.
These laws provide for financial compensation as a remedy and deterrent to unlawful discrimination. While in some cases the discriminatory actions and practices are clear and obvious more often the discriminatory intent is hidden or subtle and often require investigation and documentation.
