Indianapolis Discrimination Attorneys
You may have heard that Indiana is an “at will” employment state, but what does this mean to you? This means that employers in Indiana have a lot of power in making employment-related decisions. For example, an employer may make a decision regarding your employment status that seems unfair, yet the decision is still legal.
However, employers are not allowed to make employment decisions based on discriminatory motives. An individual can be discriminated against at all points along the employment process (not being hired, not given a promotion, being fired, etc.). There are federal and state laws that make it illegal for employers with 15 or more employees to discriminate against, or harass, an employee or job applicant based on the individual’s:
- Sex (includes pregnancy)
- National Origin
- Age (40 or older)
- Retaliation (for making a claim of discrimination)
