Workplace discrimination in the US is one of the most common causes of labor recession; however, many people do not realize that they can obtain compensation if they have suffered or are suffering from a case of labor discrimination. Here are some of the cases that we have handled in the United States:
Trenton, New Jersey: After working arduously for 10 months as a packer, an employee injured her lower back. She reported her physical problem, but instead of receiving medical treatment, she was fired.
New York, New York: On June 30, a Burger King employee was fired from her job under the pretense of poor job performance; however, she had just reported her pregnancy one week earlier.
Los Angeles, California: On February 7, after having a long disability period for a workplace injury and being cleared for work by the insurance doctor, a factory worker was immediately dismissed, although she was still recovering.
Chicago, Illinois: After 20 years of working for the same company as a factory operator, an employee is terminated from his job so a younger worker could be hired. His employers knew that he was injured, since during the time of his employment, he developed severe problems with his back and right arm derived from his daily work.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: On January 24, a restaurant employee was injured when her employer, furious about a machine malfunction, insulted and hit her in front of the customers.
