Types of Protection for El Paso Employees
There are numerous laws that protect employees not only from harassment
and discrimination but also from retaliation after the employee speaks
up. Our legal professionals can examine the circumstances of your situation
and determine if your employer acted in violation of any federal regulations.
Americans with Disabilities Act: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) serves to prohibit discrimination
and ensure equal opportunity in the workplace for all individuals. This
act also provides regulations for building structure, accommodations,
and services to ensure that disabled individuals are not wrongfully excluded
in any way. If you have a recognized disability and have experienced discrimination,
either in the workplace or with any other business or establishment, you
may be able to hold them accountable and obtain compensation by filing
Equal Employment Opportunity: The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) aids and supports
individuals who have experienced harassment or discrimination in the workplace.
The EEOC enforces federal employment law and can help you to obtain justice
and fair compensation for your case. These cases can include denial of
a job or of advancement due to race, color, religion, sex, national origin,
age, disability, or genetic information. We can help you approach the
EEOC regarding your employer's illegal behavior and provide the support
you need to maximize your chances of wining your case.
Family and Medical Leave Cases: Employees of eligible employers have the right to take up to 12 weeks
of unpaid leave per year due to serious illness or to care for a family
member who is ill. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) protects eligible
employees from facing discrimination or wrongful termination due to their
absence and protects their right to their job upon their return. An attorney
from our firm can help you file a claim if your right to unpaid leave
has been denied or if you have been wrongfully terminated or demoted while
