Federal And State Protections
Federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 42 U.S.C. 1981, as well as state laws, such as the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, prohibit employers from using race as a motivating factor in any employment practice. This protects employees from being fired, denied a promotion, demoted, denied a job or otherwise discriminated against on the basis of their race. Every person is entitled to equal rights under the law. The state and federal laws protect employees from harassment, retaliation and discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age and other factors. From intentionally demeaning racist jokes or retaliation against whistleblowers to sexual harassment, the lawyers at our firm are dedicated to helping clients pursue justice and enforce their civil rights.
