EEOC Lawsuit Attorneys

The EEOC lawyers at Phillips Dayes Law Firm PC are dedicated to the pursuit of justice on behalf of employees who have been victims of workplace discrimination. The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal government agency in charge of protecting American employees and job applicants against discrimination based on race, religion, color, sex (including pregnancy), age, national origin, disability or genetic information. Under federal employment laws, it is also illegal to discriminate against a person who complained about discrimination. When employees in Arizona, Utah, or California feel that their rights have been infringed upon, they trust the EEOC and employment attorneys at Phillips Dayes Law Firm PC to stand up for them.

EEOC Background

Every employer of at least 15 employees (20 employees in age discrimination cases) must honor the rules and regulations established by the EEOC. These laws are based on the Civil Rights Act, which states that employment discrimination on the basis of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability is illegal. Washington, D.C. is home to the headquarters of the EEOC, and there are 53 EEOC offices located throughout the United States. The EEOC regulates every aspect of work situations in the United States, including wages, benefits, harassment, hiring and firing, promotions, and training. When an American employee files a claim of discrimination, the EEOC determines whether that claim warrants a lawsuit. The EEOC also battles workplace discrimination through education and outreach programs.

Forms of Discrimination

The EEOC released a report in 2011 that showed that the number of workplace discrimination charges filed by employees in the private sector had reached a nationwide high, and this number continues to grow every day. In this environment, it is vitally important that employees understand the different types of workplace discrimination so that they can protect their rights. Examples of workplace discrimination include discrimination based on:

  • Sex
  • National Origin
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Compensation
  • Disability
  • Genetic Information
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Retaliation
  • Pregnancy

Each of these forms of workplace discrimination is governed by a distinct set of laws and regulations enforced by the EEOC.
