Have you been discriminated against by your employer? Were you fired because of your
race, age, or sexual orientation. If you have, then you are victim of Employment
Discrimination and entitled to monetary compensation. You are entitled to damages because Employment Discrimination is against both state and federal laws.
The problem however, is that most employers don’t come right out and tell their employees the real reason they are being terminated. For example, they may terminate an older worker, one who has acquired a higher salary and greater benefits than a newer, younger worker, so that they can save money. They may make up some excuse about ‘downsizing’, or ‘your position is no longer necessary to the company’, etc., but if you check back a month or two later, your job is still there, just being done by a younger worker. This is called a pretext. A pretext is when your employer gives a false reason to hide the real (illegal) reason behind your firing.
Employment Discrimination is a complex area of the law and requires a detailed understanding of law and facts of the individual case. You should consult with an experienced attorney as soon as you are terminated. Do not sign or agree to anything until you do.
