Fair employment practices are implemented to ensure that every employee is treated equally, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or religion. Violating this measure results in discrimination, which is grounds for a potential employment lawsuit. Fair employment practices expert witnesses must be knowledgeable in the particular details and background of the law, as different aspects of it will be especially relevant and pertain to specific cases.
Lawsuits related to fair employment practices often involve human resources, since the hiring and firing process, as well as other employee-related issues, are carried out by that department. A claim may be made against human resources if it has violated fair employment practices by carrying out a wrongful termination that is supposedly based on the individual’s race, religion, age, disability, or gender. Fair employment practices expert witnesses are often from a background of HR operations and management, labor law, and/or employment law.
Employee complaints over race discrimination, employee policies, the recruitment and selection process, and training procedures by managers and supervisors can all lead to potential lawsuits. Fair employment practices expert witnesses may also provide expert opinions on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL), California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), as these laws may be relevant to a court case related to fair employment practices.
