Workplace Discrimination Issues We Handle in Colorado

  • Religious Discrimination: Workers have certain protections against discrimination because of religion, and in some cases, employers are required to reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices. For example, where it is reasonable, employers must permit schedule changes or leave for religious observances. Religious discrimination also occurs when someone is treated differently because that person is married to an individual of a particular religion. If you believe that your rights were violated, you should contact our Denver religious discrimination lawyers right away.
  • Age Discrimination: Older workers sometimes face unfair bias in the workplace. If you were a victim of age discrimination in Colorado, please contact our Colorado age discrimination attorneys.

Coffman Legal, our Denver Colorado military status discrimination lawyers advocate for the employment rights of service members.
  • Pregnancy Discrimination: There are laws that protect employees against pregnancy discrimination. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) of 1978 prohibits discrimination based on pregnancy status when it comes to firing, hiring, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, fringe benefits such as leave and health insurance, and any other term or condition of employment.

Disability Discrimination

If you have faced job-related disability discrimination in Colorado, you need to speak to our disability discrimination attorneys. Workers should not be denied a position or discriminated against based solely on stereotypes or false assumptions about their abilities. If your employer fires you or takes other adverse action against you because of your disability, even though you are capable of performing the essential functions of your job with or without reasonable accommodation, you may have a legal claim and should contact our Denver Colorado disability discrimination attorneys. You have rights to reasonable accommodations and our Denver Colorado employment and disability discrimination lawyers can handle your case.

Employees Have the Right to Report Workplace Discrimination

If you were subject to unlawful discrimination in the workplace, it needs to stop immediately. You have the right to report any discriminatory conduct and file an official legal complaint without facing retribution from your employer or coworkers. Unfortunately, in far too many cases, workers endure unjust retaliation after they exercise their most basic legal rights.

Retaliation can occur when an employer fires, demotes, cuts an employee’s pay, or otherwise treats an employee adversely because of any reports and/or allegations of discrimination to management, HR, or another person.

Employers often retaliate against individuals who call attention to discrimination and demand that the unfair and unequal treatment stops. If you were the victim of workplace retaliation — meaning you were terminated, demoted, punished, or faced any other type of Adverse Employment Action for reporting discrimination or filing a claim — it is vital that you contact our experienced Denver Colorado employment retaliation attorneys immediately. Your legal rights have been violated, and you can bring a retaliation claim in conjunction with a broader workplace discrimination claim.
