Fighting Discrimination Inside and Outside The Workplace
Employment discrimination impacts hiring, firing, compensation, job assignments, scheduling, performance evaluation, promotion and everyday treatment such as exclusion from important meetings, stereotyping, discriminatory workload, denial of access to information or work tools or denial of proper training. Workplace discrimination does not always involve loss of a job, but its effects can be financially and emotionally devastating.
Discrimination can also occur outside the workplace, in schools, in public accommodations or in public services. Schools include public and private institutions offering education at any level. Public accommodations can include stores, restaurants, movie theaters, hospitals, clubs or other establishments that invite people in to purchase goods or services. Public services include police and emergency personnel and government services.
Many victims of discrimination are afraid to report discriminatory behavior, fearing retaliation. People who suffer discrimination often do not know where to turn for help. If you have been the victim of discrimination, the attorneys at Culberth & Lienemann, LLP, in St. Paul, will fight for you. Our law firm handles discrimination claims throughout the state of Minnesota. We are tenacious advocates and have a long history for success in holding employers accountable.
