Hillsborough County Sexual Discrimination Attorney
In order to make a successful discrimination claim, there must be some evidence that you were discriminated against because of your membership in a protected class. In other words, there must be clear indication that you were terminated, demoted, passed up for a promotion or otherwise mistreated at work because of your:
- Sexual orientation
At the Poulos Law Firm in Tampa, Florida, I can review your situation to determine whether you have a discrimination case or not. In some cases, I may discover that, while you do not have a discrimination claim, you may have another type of employment law claim such as an unpaid wages claim. If you have been discriminated against, you can be confident knowing you have a trial lawyer on your side who will fight for you.
What Type of Discrimination Have You Encountered?
Racial discrimination, religious discrimination and age discrimination are realities that many people face. Gender discrimination and discrimination based on sexual orientation often takes the form of sexual harassment. Disability discrimination is common and often takes surprising forms. These are not always simple cases of employers failing to make physical accommodations for disabled employees. These also include employers taking action against employees who are using Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) time or pregnancy leave.
Often, multiple issues are tangled together. An employee who left on extended FMLA leave may return to find themselves demoted, passed up for a promotion or even terminated. Then they may find their wages withheld, while the employer tries to use a noncompete agreement to prevent them from pursuing their career. I have the skill to take on all discrimination cases, no matter how tangled and complex they may seem.
