Representation in Discrimination Claims and Discrimination Lawsuits

Many categories of people are protected by federal laws against discrimination in the workplace which include:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination by covered employers in employment on the basis of race, color, sex, religion or national origin.
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination by covered employers against employees aged 40 or older with respect to term, condition or privilege of employment.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination by covered employers in several areas on the basis of disabilities. It also requires that covered employers provide reasonable accommodations to qualified job seekers and employees.
  • The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 prohibits covered employers to discriminate because of sex including but not limited to on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions.
  • The Family Medical and Leave Act provides that covered employers provide to eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave from work with no threat of job loss or demotion and other protections during any 12-month period to attend to certain needs and conditions of the family.

Pennsylvania also has state laws regarding discrimination in employment, including the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
