Workplace discrimination is a distressing reality that many employees face on a daily basis, despite state and federal protections. Although it is illegal to discriminate based on a variety of protected factors, Virginia Beach workers often experience unfair treatment on the job. Whether you are denied a promotion due to a pregnancy, are subjected to a hostile work environment, or are paid less for equal work due to your race, sex, or disability, discrimination carries serious negative repercussions for employees struggling to perform their duties. Furthermore, employees who speak up about illegal discrimination in the workplace often fear being retaliated against by their employers.

Worker Protections in Virginia Beach
Federal and state anti-discrimination laws prohibit employers from making hiring, firing, pay, job assignment, promotion, layoff, training, and employee benefits decisions on anything other than an employee’s work performance. Unfortunately, in some instances, employees are discriminated against based on the bias and prejudice of their employers.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces several anti-discrimination laws to protect employees from unfair treatment in the workplace. Bertini Law represents employees who are immersed in the EEOC charge process.
In addition to representing victims of discrimination in the workplace, our attorneys serve companies, medical practices, and legal practices of all sizes that seek guidance in human relations.
