At Wanta Thome, we stand firmly against all forms of employment discrimination that deny individuals their fundamental rights and opportunities based on prejudice. Our mission is to fight for justice and create inclusive workplaces where every employee is treated with dignity and respect.
Employment discrimination can take many forms and can occur at every level of an organization. Discover how Wanta Thome employment discrimination attorneys approach employment discrimination law.
Understanding Employment Discrimination
Discrimination takes various forms, influencing how individuals or groups are treated based on their perceived or actual membership in certain social categories. This treatment is often worse than how others are typically treated, leading to exclusion and restricted access to opportunities or privileges. While discrimination is prevalent worldwide, it is not always rooted in prejudice.
Your Rights Are Our Priority
In Minnesota and beyond, both state and federal laws are in place to protect employees from discrimination and retaliation. Our seasoned lawyers specialize in employment discrimination law, and we are well-versed in the Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA) and federal laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
A Range of Protections for Employment Discrimination
Our practice extends to safeguarding your rights against discrimination based on age, disability, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, national origin, race, and marital and caregiver status. Additionally, these protections extend to hostile work environments, where mistreatment is tied to an employee’s protected status. We are also dedicated to upholding the rights of service members under the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).
Comprehensive Employment Discrimination Lawyers
Beyond addressing discrimination, we provide support and guidance concerning workplace drug and alcohol testing, employment background checks, and wrongful terminations. If your termination violates state or federal law, we’ll take action to defend your rights.
