National Origin Discrimination and Harassment
Labor & Employment Law
National Origin Discrimination in Florida
The Sass Law Firm represents employees in national origin discrimination cases in both federal and state courts. Federal and state laws protect employees not only from race discrimination, but also from discrimination based upon your nation of origin, also known as national original discrimination. For example, if an employer treats people from Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Canada, Japan, or any country less favorably than employees from other countries, it is unlawful. If you feel you have been discriminated against because of your national origin, including being subjected to a hostile work environment, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. National origin discrimination is against the law.
National Origin Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal and state laws against treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based upon their national origin also make it illegal to subject employees to harassment because of their national origin. For example, if you are frequently subjected to derogatory comments regarding your nation of origin 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 national origin, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the national origin harassment does not stop, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. National origin harassment is against the law.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about national origin harassment or national origin 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.
