What is the Civil Rights Act of 1964?
Keep in mind that this law protects all employees who document an act of wrongdoing or discrimination within a company. Recognize that it does not matter if the act was done to them or another person because he or she will always be protected. For example, Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 state that workers are protected from discrimination based on their race, color, national origin, gender, and more. For instance, if you believe that you were discriminated against because of your gender and you would like to pursue legal action and report the act of discrimination, you will have the legal right not to be retaliated against by your employer. It is unfortunate, however, that in some instances, employers do not always understand or accept this legal right and will choose to retaliate against their employees anyway. Our firm has seen a number of different ways that employers have retaliated against their employees. However, the most common kinds of retaliation in the workplace that our legal team has witnessed include:
- Harassing an employee and creating a hostile work environment
- Demoting an employee
- Decreasing an employee’s pay
- Firing or laying off an employee
