ATTENTION: Have You Been The Victim Of Employment Discrimination, Wrongful Termination, Or Harassment? Our Experienced Employment Law Attorneys May Be Able To Help!
The Nevada Equal Rights Commission affirmatively protects employees against workplace discrimination and harassment, as well as wrongful termination and denial of employee benefits.
According to the Nevada Equal Rights Commission, the most common types of employment discrimination are age, disability, equal pay, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, retaliation, sex, sexual harassment, and sexual orientation.
Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).
To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile, or offensive to reasonable people.
Offensive conduct may include, but is not limited to:
- Offensive jokes
- Epithets or name calling
- Physical assaults or threats
- Ridicule or mockery
- Insults or put-downs
- Offensive objects or pictures
- Interference with work performance
In addition, not all Las Vegas employment law cases involve discrimination or harassment. Employees are routinely and unlawfully denied benefits related to Family Medical Leave, COBRA health benefits, and employee pension plans.
