Wyomissing, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/11/2016 -- Although harassment and employment discrimination are not nearly as pervasive in contemporary workplace culture as they may have been in decades past, such offenses remain an unfortunate reality that frequently needs to be addressed. Whether during the hiring process or while on the job site, instances of racial, gender and sexual discrimination still occur on a regular basis at corporations.
Oftentimes, victims of workplace discrimination are too embarrassed or fearful to respond to their mistreatment by superiors and coworkers. But a victim's failure to take action following these injustices can often perpetuate a never ending cycle of harassment and abuse. Kozloff Stoudt Attorneys encourages victims of recent instances of discrimination in the workforce to break their silence and to seek the counsel of an experienced workplace discrimination attorney in PA. If victims of such adversity speak out against an offender's misdeeds, the corporate environment can be improved for the betterment of the entire organization. Kozloff Stoudt's experienced trial attorneys understand the array of emotions that victims can experience following such humiliating incidents and are ready to support and advocate on behalf of their brave clients as they fight to right the wrongs of the working environment.
In Pennsylvania, it is illegal to be discriminated against on the basis of one's race, color, national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, or citizenship status. Moreover, individuals aged 40 years or older cannot be discriminated against due to their age. In the event that action is taken against an employee on account of his or her status of as a member of any one or more of these protected classifications, such employee may be the victim of an unlawful act of employment discrimination. Discrimination in the workforce can take a variety of forms, including the refusal to hire or promote a qualified candidate, the termination of employee without just cause, or simply unwelcome treatment solely on the basis of an individual's membership in a protected classification. In instances where such discrimination has caused financial loss or emotional distress to an employee, successful prosecution of a claim of discrimination can help make a victim whole and punish those responsible in such a manner that future discrimination will be deterred.
