What To Do In Case Of Marital Status Discrimination At Work?

Employer-perpetrated marital status discrimination is a sort of discrimination or harassment.

This type of discrimination is shown when an applicant or employee who is not single or has a spouse or family is denied employment or does not receive comparable remuneration or statutory and additional benefits.

It is illegal for an employer to judge an employee’s abilities based on his or her marital status or any other superficial characteristic. If you believe your employer is discriminating against you because of your marital status or your choice to be single or in a relationship, you have the right to sue your employer for damages. If you believe your employer is breaching your employment law rights, seek quick legal assistance from an expert marital status attorney.
