Spokane Discrimination Attorneys

Fight Unfair Working Conditions with the Sweetser Law Office

Discrimination in legal terms covers a wide arrange of different characteristics an individual might possess in order to categorize them, possibly segregating or dismissing them for said characteristics. This typically happens in the workplace when someone’s particular characteristics keep them from being accepted or chosen to perform a certain task. Types of discrimination are extremely important to know as we get older and begin to enter different positions, not only in an employment sense, but also within a community.

Types of discrimination include:

  • Race
  • Disability
  • Religion
  • Age
  • National Origin

In addition, it is important to note that some states do have alterations to the civil rights act that does include specific provisions to enhance the scope of who is protected under discrimination law. Washington is one such state, Washington includes prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity and/or marital status. These are unfortunately not protected at a national level as of today, but is considered to be law in the State of Washington.

If you are considering filing a discrimination claim in Washington there are two avenues that you could take: filing a claim with the Washington State Human Rights Communion (WSHRC) and/or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Furthermore, it is important to note the timeline by which you can file: with the WSHRC you may file within 6 months and the EEOC within 300 days (about 10 months).

Protecting Your Rights in Washington

Being discriminated against for any of our characteristics also comes with a negative and sometimes harassing stigma that could transfer into any given activity.
