Discrimination law is a subsection of employment law in which a person alleges being treated differently in whether to be hired, or in treatment after being hired (such as comparative level of pay or difference of job within the company), or in treatment in being fired, due to a legally protected distinction, including, but not limited to, race, religion or gender. A discrimination lawyer must prove that the aggrieved person has been unduly affected, and for the specified reason. In other words, if a Jewish employee feels that he’s being paid less, or being given more and/or harder work, than a Christian employee who, for all intents and purposes, has the same job, then he can argue under civil rights laws that he has been facing discrimination. A discrimination lawyer would be able to boost his case by finding other current or former employees of the discriminating party who can testify to similar treatment.
