Protecting Your Rights in the Workplace

Marital Status Discrimination

Attorneys Defending Single Parent Discrimination

Parents face many challenges when balancing work and family life. Added, unexpected stressors can come in the form of discrimination at work based on familial status. The Law Offices of Vincent P. White are dedicated to protecting parental rights and providing support to parents facing workplace discrimination.

Employers may attempt to terminate an employee based on the employee’s need to meet the demands of his or her family. This is against the law. State and federal laws require that employers make reasonable accommodations for parents, such as assigning the working parent to a different shift. At the very least, the employer must engage in a dialogue in hopes of finding a solution that benefits both themselves and their employee.

At times, discrimination against a single mother may not be very apparent, making it difficult to identify.
