Austin Title VII Attorneys
To better protect the rights of workers in the United States, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees on basis of their national origin, religion, skin color, sex, gender, or race. As such, Austin employers who violate these protections may be held liable for any act, practice, or policy of discrimination.
If you believe you are protected under Title VII and have been discriminated against in the Austin area, it may be wise to ask one of the Austin Title VII attorneys at the The Melton Law Firm to see what legal action you may be eligible to pursue.
Title VII Claims
Protecting applicants and employees alike, Title VII prohibits Austin employers from engaging in any of the following forms of discrimination:
- Intentional, overt discrimination against members of protected groups
- Failure to accommodate members of protected groups, especially with regard to religion
- Implementation of policies that negatively affect protected groups
- Retaliation against members of protected groups
Title VII is applicable to most employers with fifteen (15) or more employees, labor organizations, and employment agencies in the Austin area.
