JOB SECURITY

Unforeseen occurrences force everyone to take an unexpected exit off the road at some point. Fortunately, there are laws in place that allow you to be able to return to your job should you need to take a sudden leave of absence.

RELIGIOUS HARMONY

The ability to worship in the way you choose is a right that many have paid the ultimate sacrifice to possess. With our help, you will see that showing your religious pride and customs does not stop when you enter the workplace. If your employer treats you differently in the terms and conditions of your employment based on your religious preference, your employer is in direct violation of the law, undermining the price many have paid for that privilege. Contact Ahmad & Akbar to learn more about how to ensure peaceful and equal coexistence in the workplace.

Employment Law

 

Despite the immense social progress made in the United States, employment discrimination on the basis of sex, race, religion, and national origin are still common within companies. Employees who feel that they have become victims of racial and religious discrimination or that they were treated unfairly because of their sex or national origin should immediately seek the services of an employment discrimination attorney. The attorneys at Ahmad & Akbar are devoted to helping individuals learn more about the rights they have and the recourses available to them should they decide to action against their employers.

 

What Is Title VII?

 

Our attorneys are thoroughly voiced in the Civil Rights Act and how it pertains to employment discrimination and we are skilled at utilizing them to file effective claims on our client’s behalf. Title VII is the name of the federal law that prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on any of the following items:

 

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • National Origin

 

In addition to these provisions, the Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees due to age, weight, height, marital status or arrest record. Together, these two laws help to protect employees from a variety of victimizing actions in the workplace such as:

 

  • Not making reasonable accommodations for employees desiring to observe a religious holiday, dress in religious attire, or participate in religious practices.
  • Firing or retaliating against workers because they have filed discriminatory claims or complained about mistreatment related to discrimination.
  • Basing decisions and actions towards and employee based on the race or national origin of their spouse or friends.
  • Dividing workers or assigning them based on their race or skin color

 

The attorneys at Ahmad & Akbar understand how emotional and damaging it can be for an individual to face discrimination from their employers. We believe in taking the time to understand our client’s position and help them realize that they can stand up against the injustice of employment discrimination. Our attorneys utilize their experience in representing employers to effectively litigate against any loopholes or arguments they may pose when trying to defend against our claims. By hiring our firm to represent you in your discrimination matter, you can be sure you will receive the personal attention and time that your case deserves.
