As with all workers, employees of the federal government are protected from discrimination based on sex, race, color, age, religion, national origin, and disability. Unfortunately, bosses and managers occasionally discriminate against employees in spite of these regulations.
If you have been the victim of federal discrimination practices and you are a federal employee, it is your right to seek representation.
Discrimination in the workplace can affect your ability to hold a job, receive a fair salary, earn raises and promotions, and more. In fact, you may not even get hired if you are the victim of discrimination based on age, gender, ethnicity, and others. Fortunately, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, can help you fight back against federal workplace discrimination.
It can be intimidating to stand up to a federal discrimination employer. However, an experienced federal employment attorney can help you file your case with the EEOC. To fight back, contact a tenacious lawyer for Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cases from the Vaughn Law Firm by calling 877-615-9495.
Types of Discrimination
Discrimination can affect all aspects of the workplace: hiring, firing, raises or promotions, employment benefits, etc. U.S. laws prohibit discrimination based on a number of factors, including:
- Presence of a disability
How the EEOC Can Help
The EEOC is a federal law enforcement agency that investigates discrimination complaints. If the EEOC finds evidence of discrimination, it can file suit on behalf of the victim. Additionally, the EEOC can adjudicate cases involving discrimination in federal agencies. However, keep in mind that you must file a “Charge of Discrimination” with the EEOC before you file an actual lawsuit against your employer.
