The Employment Attorneys of Goodin Abernathy LLP understand the complex legal issues that can arise in the workplace and has handled employment law issues from both the employer and employee perspective and has a proven track record of moving toward a resolution. Indiana is an “at will” employment state, however, that does not mean employers can hire and fire indiscriminately. Indeed, Federal and State employment laws protect employees from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. As an employee in Indiana, it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities because what you don’t know can hurt you.
• Unfair treatment due to the employee’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
• Harassment by managers, co-workers, or others in the workplace because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetic information.
• Denial of a reasonable work accommodation necessary because of religious beliefs or disability.
• Retaliation because an employee complained about job discrimination, or when an employee assisted with a job discrimination investigation or lawsuit.
