What is Employment or Workplace Discrimination?
Employees and job applicants in Wisconsin are protected from unlawful discrimination in the workplace, or during an interview, by both Wisconsin state laws and federal laws.
Employees may bring discrimination claims in employment practices such as, posting openings, recruiting, hiring, job evaluations, termination, promotion, training, compensation, demotion, and disciplinary action.
How to Prove Employment Discrimination
Whether discrimination in the workplace happens intentionally or unintentionally, employers are subject to these laws. To prove an employer is guilty of employment discrimination an employee or applicant needs to establish an adverse employment decision was motivated by the individual’s protected class, not by a legitimate business reason.
For example, this means in order to successfully prove disability discrimination a former employee does not have to prove a disability was the only reason an adverse action was taken, simply a part of the reason. These cases are typically complex. If you believe employment discrimination may be a concern in the workplace, Walcheske & Luzi, LLC can help.
