What is Employment or Workplace Discrimination?
As an employee or job applicant in Wisconsin, you are protected from being discriminated against in the workplace, or during an interview, by both Wisconsin state laws and federal laws.
These laws make it illegal for an employer to discriminate 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, it is always illegal. To prove your employer is guilty of employment discrimination you need to establish an adverse employment decision was motivated by a protected class you belong to, not by a legitimate business reason.
For example, this means in order to successfully prove disability discrimination you do not have to prove race was the only reason an adverse action was taken, simply a part of the reason. This can be far more difficult than it sounds. If you believe you have been subjected to one of the following types of employment discrimination, Walcheske & Luzi, LLC can help.
