Everyone has civil rights set out in the United States Constitution. When a government official, employer, or another party violates your civil rights, the law entitles you to certain compensation and legal relief if you bring a legal claim against them. Civil rights & discrimination cases can be complex, so you always want to seek help from an lawyer who has a thorough understanding of civil rights laws and violations.
Most employees are hired on an at-will basis, meaning they can be terminated for any non-discriminatory reason. Under federal, state and local laws, however, employers cannot terminate employees on the basis of their protected class. In other words, it is against the law to discriminate against employees and job applicants.
The goal is to uphold the Constitution and ensure that everyone receives the protection of the laws that our society depends upon.
