Employment Discrimination

Indiana is considered an employment at-will state.

This generally means employees can be terminated for any reason as long as the termination is not due to sex, religion, race, age or political affiliation. Of course some state and federal laws protecting employees apply only when a certain number of employees are employed. Additionally, union negotiated contract protections, or protections stated in employee handbooks, can have an impact on employee rights, as can rights enumerated in ERISA based benefit plans. Further, certain rights are conferred via the Americans With Disabilities Act and the 2009 amendments to the act.

Though we no longer handle discrimination based claims we very likely will be able to refer you to someone who will be able to assist you.
