Have you been treated differently at work because of your race, color, religion, national origin, sex, ancestry, age, or because of a disability? Were you unfairly denied employment, a raise, or a promotion? Do you feel your job status was negatively affected because of your race, color, religion, national origin, sex, ancestry, age or disability? Were you denied services because of your skin color, religion, or ancestry?
If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
Under both the Missouri Human Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, or the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, you have certain rights, including the right to work in an environment free from discrimination. If you feel that you have had your rights taken advantage of at work, then you need to speak with an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable in employment discrimination matters.
When a victim of discrimination in the workplace tries to enforce their rights without a trained and experienced attorney on their side, their case may be more likely to be closed with a finding of No Probable Cause.
You only have a limited window in which to take action. The time to act is now. You may only have as little as 180 days from the date of the act of discrimination in which to file your Complaint with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. If you do not act quickly, then you may lose your chance to protect your rights.
