Employment law disputes between employees and employers can place employees in a difficult position, as they depend on the income and benefits from their jobs. Employers are required to follow federal, Colorado, and local employment laws. You depend on your employment, and you hope that your employer abides by the law. Unfortunately, employers sometimes willingly or unknowingly violate the law, and in most cases, they have more substantial resources than their employees. Whether you are concerned about workplace harassment or need to file a wage and hour claim, you should retain a skillful employment attorney.
Employment discrimination is unlawful. It occurs when an employee is treated differently regarding an employment decision based on his or her membership in a protected category. Employment laws that protect employees in Colorado include the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act, which prohibits employment discrimination based on gender identity, sexual orientation, sex, national origin, domestic partnership status, marital status, disability, creed, color, military service, ancestry, and age. There are also a plethora of federal laws that protect employees, such as the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Claims of discrimination may also be pursued in the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). It is important to work with an attorney who is knowledgeable about federal, state, and local laws. Feldman / Wertz represents clients throughout Colorado.
