Discrimination

Massachusetts Employment Law Attorney ◦ Race/Sex/Age/Disability/Pregnancy Discrimination

The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s helped initiate the enactment of various federal and state laws prohibiting employers from making decisions based on factors other than the quality of an employees’ work or the livelihood of the business. Whether you are an employee who has suffered the effects of unlawful discrimination, or an employer in need of protection from allegations of discrimination, your first step to a resolution is to contact an experienced employment discrimination lawyer.

The Massachusetts employment law firm of Yee & Associates counsels and represents bothemployees and employers on matters involving Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits an employer with fifteen or more employees from discriminating on the basis of race, national origin, gender, or religion. Title VII made it illegal for an employer to treat an employee on the basis of such characteristics through any of the following actions:

  • Refusal to hire;
  • Discipline;
  • Wrongful Discharge;
  • Denial of training;
  • Failure to promote;
  • Pay reductions or demotions; or
  • Harassment.

You may have reason to suspect that you were discriminated against on the job as a result of pregnancy—a form of gender discrimination. On the other hand, you may believe you were a victim of “reverse discrimination” when a potential employer implied that you were not hired because you are a white male. You may be an employer in need of discrimination lawsuit prevention.

Massachusetts employment law attorney Frank Yee is well qualified to assist either employees or employers in discrimination claims and disputes. His training through a program sponsored by the Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination qualifies him to train employers about sexual harassment, discrimination, and internal investigations. This training enhances his ability to advise employees as well.

Mr. Yee’s knowledge of both sides of a discrimination-related employment law issue offers benefits to both employees and employers who seek his counsel and representation. Contact Yee & Associates by phone or email regarding FMLA disputes, sexual harassment, and other employment law matters.
