Houston Discrimination Attorneys

Discrimination is about control, an attempt to belittle or push employees down based upon improper and illegal reasons. Both state and federal law are in place to protect employees from discrimination.

There are short time limits to bring a discrimination complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and file suit. That’s why it is important to reach out to an employment law attorney right away if you suspect you are a victim of discrimination. Our discrimination lawyers in Houston can help you protect your rights.

Protected Classes Are Safeguarded from Discrimination

Federal and Texas employment laws afford employees protection from several main types of discrimination:

  • Age discrimination (40 or older)
  • Gender discrimination, including sexual harassment
  • Race and color discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Transgender status
  • Discrimination against membership in the armed services
  • Sex discrimination
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • National origin discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Sexual orientation
  • Discrimination based upon genetic information

Even unintended discrimination can be a cause for a lawsuit. For example, an employer implementing a policy that indirectly affects that protected group’s ability to work can support a discrimination claim.
