Sickle Cell Discrimination in Florida
Sass Law Firm represents employees in sickle cell anemia discrimination cases. Federal and state laws protect employees against sickle cell anemia discrimination. In other words, employers may not discriminate against you because you have been diagnosed with sickle cell anemia or the genetic marker for sickle cell anemia. If you feel you have suffered 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 based on sickle cell anemia, either through the employer or the courts, please call Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Discrimination related to sickle cell anemia is against the law.
Sickle Cell Anemia Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal and state laws prohibiting treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment because of sickle cell anemia also make it illegal to subject an employee to harassment because of sickle cell anemia. For example, if you are frequently subjected to derogatory comments regarding sickle cell anemia 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 sickle cell anemia, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the harassment does not stop, please call Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about sickle cell anemia harassment or discrimination, please call Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Retaliation is against the law.
