ST. LOUIS RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ATTORNEY
Missouri and federal law protects employees from employment discrimination in the workplace. Workers are protected against discrimination when being hired, fired, promoted or being mistreated as a result of their race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, disability, whether you are a pregnant woman, and whether you have been injured on the job.
In order to prevent people from being discriminated against in the workplace the federal government passed Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to engage in employment discrimination because of an employee’s:
- National origin
- Ethnic identity
