What is discrimination in the workplace?
If your employer doesn't like you and fires you, that is not necessarily
discrimination according to the law. In order for the case to be considered
discrimination according to the law, the employer must be discriminating
on the basis of a "protected category", like race, national
origin, gender and age to name a few. The specific categories which are
protected are spelled out in State and Federal anti-discrimination laws.
Because gender, or sex, is one protected category, everyone is protected
by at least one category. Many people fall into more than one protected
category. An experienced
employment lawyer will be able to advise you if your situation constitutes illegal workplace
Embarrassment or Shame
Many people feel embarrassed or ashamed to bring forth a discrimination
claim against an employer or former employer. If you are a victim of discrimination,
it is the employer or former employer who ought to feel ashamed. Stand
up for your rights. Start by getting advice from a lawyer who is skilled
in this area of law.
Cost of filing a claim
Many people worry about the cost of bringing a discrimination claim against
an employer. That is why the Aguirre law firm accepts workplace discrimination
cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that you will not be charged
a fee unless we obtain a favorable settlement or judgment in your case.

If you believe that you are a victim of workplace discrimination, don’t
make the mistake of ignoring the situation in hopes that the problem will
get better. Experience suggests that discrimination that goes unpunished
only gets worse, if not for you, then for others who come after you. Proving
discrimination can be a very complicated process. You need a lawyer who
truly understands discrimination laws and who has the experience to navigate
you through the process. Take the first step and get advice. The Aguirre
Law Firm, PLLC offers a free and confidential appointment to make it easy
