Newton County Employment Discrimination Attorneys

Fighting for the Rights of All Workers in McDonald County & Southwest Missouri 

Are you facing discrimination at your place of work? You may have been denied a promotion because of your age. You could have been terminated after reporting instances of sexual harassment. Possibly, you have been interviewing for a new job, and were asked inappropriate questions about your race or national origin by the potential employer.

Situations such as these are not only uncomfortable and morally unacceptable but could also be illegal. Federal, state, and local laws provide protections for people who have been discriminated against in professional settings. As the victim of discrimination, you have a right to file a claim against the discriminatory parties, and possibly recover compensation for the damages you have suffered. The legal team at Neff & Day, P.C. can help!

Employment Discrimination Laws

The laws that apply to your employment discrimination case will depend on the type of discrimination you are facing and the details of your specific case. There are multiple federal laws in place to combat employment discrimination, as well as local statutes present in different states.

Federal Laws

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing anti-discrimination legislation throughout the country.

Some of the federal laws that protect people in the United States from employment discrimination include:

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Civil Rights Act of 1991
  • Equal Pay Act (EPA)

Local Laws

The Missouri Human Rights Act protects residents of the state against discrimination, including employment discrimination. In addition to providing legal safeguards for those in protected classes, the statute also protects people who are linked with someone in a protected class. Missouri residents can file employment discrimination claims with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights (MCHR).

Our lawyers can provide further information about the laws that may apply to your case.

Discrimination is more than just a mean comment you can brush off or an unpleasant situation that you can move on from. When discrimination occurs in the workplace, it limits the opportunities of the victim, which translate into significant losses — financial and otherwise. To learn more about your options for recovering the damages you have suffered, contact Neff & Day, P.C.
