The Sass Law Firm represents employees in genetic information discrimination cases in federal courts. Federal law protects employees against genetic information discrimination. In other words, employers may not discriminate against you because of your genetics or family medical history. If you feel you have suffered genetic information discrimination in not being hired, being fired, or in any other manner, including being subjected to a hostile work environment, and seek to remedy the discrimination, either through the employer or the courts, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Genetic information discrimination is against the law.
Genetic Information Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal laws prohibiting treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based upon genetic information also make it illegal to subject an employee to harassment because of their genetic information. For example, if you are frequently subjected to derogatory comments regarding your genetics by co-workers or supervisors, it could be considered unlawful harassment or creating a hostile work environment. If you feel you are being harassed because of your genetic information, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the genetic harassment does not stop, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. Genetic information harassment is against the law.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about genetic information harassment or genetic information discrimination, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Retaliation is against the law.
