Tampa Employment Discrimination Lawyer

There are many forms of discrimination in the workplace.   Discrimination can be proven in a variety of ways, including: direct evidence, circumstantial evidence, pattern or practice evidence or workplace policies that have a disparate impact on a particular group or class of individuals.

Different types of employment discrimination claims are viewed differently by courts.  For example, an employee that feels that he or she was terminated from their job because of their disability has to prove several elements of their claim (Does the condition meet the definition of “disability” under the law? Can they perform the essential functions of their job with or without a reasonable accommodation?) in order to prevail.  On the other hand, the burdens of proof in a claim under the Equal Pay Act are different than other forms of discrimination. The employment lawyers at Florin Gray Bouzas Owens are available to discuss your case with you, and can help you determine if you were a victim of employment discrimination.

Employment Discrimination Can include:

  • Termination
  • Forced Resignation/Constructive Discharge
  • Discipline
  • Demotion
  • Failure to Promote
  • Pay Disparities (Equal Pay)
  • Loss of Benefits
  • Job Recruitment
  • Hiring
  • Refusing a Reasonable Accommodation for Disability
  • Refusing a Reasonable Accommodation for Religion
  • Dress Codes

Workplace Discrimination Definition

The essence of workplace discrimination is that one employee is treated less favorably than another employee.

This can include employment discrimination based on:

  • race
  • color
  • national origin
  • gender
  • sex
  • pregnancy
  • marital status
  • disability
  • handicap
  • age
  • religion
  • genetic information

Ultimately, a jury will try and determine the motive or intent of the person or people that were allegedly discriminating against the worker.  Generally, motive or intent is established through circumstantial evidence, which is why it is important to have a Tampa employment discrimination attorney evaluate your potential legal claim.  Do you believe that your employer discriminated against you or took adverse employment actions against you due to a similar situation?  If so, Our Tampa Work Discrimination Lawyers at Florin Gray Bouzas Owens are here to help.
