DISCRIMINATION AND RETALIATION
Employment Contract Review
Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act are all some of the statutes that protect employees from unlawful discrimination. In addition, if you complain of discrimination and are punished for it you may have a cause of action for retaliation.
Know what you are signing -- many employment agreements contain clauses like a non-compete clause that will impact you sometimes years after leaving an employer.
