Discrimination lawsuits can take on many forms, making it imperative to retain the proper discrimination expert witness for your particular case. Discrimination occurs when an individual is treated unfairly because of his or her race, age, gender, appearance, disability, or any other type of prejudice. The setting in which such incidents occur may be anywhere, such as a public school or an office workplace environment. Discrimination expert witnesses may have experience in specific areas, depending on the particular details of each case.
One common form of such lawsuits is employment discrimination, which is any type of discrimination within a workplace environment. Employee polices must be implemented by human resources to avoid discrimination, as any form of harassment, such as racial or sexual harassment, would be grounds for a lawsuit. Wrongful termination may also be caused by discrimination, depending on each particular situation.
Discrimination can also be made against disabled individuals, as the law requires certain accommodations for everyone, regardless of any type of disability. For example, the failure of a school or office building to provide wheelchair access would be grounds for a discrimination lawsuit. Students with developmental disabilities should also be accommodated in a classroom setting, the violation of which can be cause for litigation.
