St. Louis Discrimination Law Practice
Employees have the right to work in a non-discriminatory workplace. Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, sex, gender, pregnancy, or status as a veteran. It is against the law for employers to consider any of these characteristics in their employment decisions such as those involving hiring, firing, compensation, job assignments, promotions, demotions, discipline or any other term or condition of employment.
Employers are also prohibited from discriminating against an employee because the employee is associated with a person with one of these characteristics. For example, an employer may not terminate an employee because they have a family member with a disability who may increase the employer’s health insurance premiums.
