Workplace discrimination can occur at any stage of the employment cycle, including hiring, promotions, training or other opportunities, discipline, and firing or termination.

Workplace discrimination may occur when an employer makes a decision about your job or your pay not because of your work performance or a business need, but because of your protected characteristics or actions, including:


  • Race
  • Color
  • Sex
  • Gender identity
  • Sexual orientation
  • Physical disability
  • Mental disability
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Pregnancy
  • Family or marital status
  • Veteran’s status


  • Reporting illegal conduct
  • Reporting sexual harassment
  • Making an HR complaint
  • Reporting a safety hazard
  • Filing for workers’ compensation
  • Taking protected family leave
  • Taking protected pregnancy leave
  • Taking protected sick leave
  • Participating in an investigation
  • Seeking disability accommodations
  • Seeking religious accommodations
  • Seeking help for domestic violence
  • Military service

If you’ve experienced adverse treatment at work because of any of these characteristics or actions, you may have a discrimination claim. You can schedule a call with Klein Munsinger or complete this short form and we will contact you.
