Discrimination

Proving a case of discrimination includes gathering evidence relating to employer motive, specific inequality, and policies and practices of the employer. If your employer treats you differently than other employees, you might be facing discrimination.

Discrimination laws protect current employees and prospective workers. Anyone who feels they have been discriminated against in the workplace may be able to file a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Below are some statutes and regulations that govern workplace discrimination.

  • Equal Pay Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • The American with Disabilities Act
  • Massachusetts Fair Employment Practices Act, M.G.L. c. 151B
  • Massachusetts Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act, M.G.L. c. 149, § 105D
