Are You a Victim of Discrimination in Louisville?

In the state of Kentucky, as well as across the nation, it is illegal to discriminate in the process of hiring, promoting, terminating, or any other employment-related action. Unfortunately, discrimination happens frequently in the workplace, leaving employees and their families suffering with the ruinous aftermath of injustice and unfair treatment.

Discrimination is illegal and can take on numerous forms, such as:

  • Age, race, color, national origin or heritage
  • Sex, gender, or sexual orientation
  • Religious affiliation
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Retaliation and whistleblower claims
  • Housing

If you think you have been discriminated against by an employer, coworker, government, agency, union, or any other entity within your workplace, you must speak with our Louisville employment attorneys. At Biesecker Dutkanych & Macer, LLC, we know how to advocate for the fullest protection of your rights after your civil and Constitutional liberties have been egregiously violated.

Disability Discrimination

Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibits private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.

In addition, an employer is required to make a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee if it would not impose an "undue hardship" on the operation of the employer's business. If you feel that you have been treated differently based on your disability or your employer has refused to accommodate your disability, contact one of our Indianapolis, Evansville or Louisville attorneys today.

Gender Discrimination

The Kentucky Civil Rights Act makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a certain employee based on their gender, race, color, religion, national origin or age—especially when it comes to wages. More specifically, KY Rev. Stat. Sec. 344.100 states that an employer could only apply different standards of compensation if it is based on a bona fide seniority or merit system. This means that men and women must be paid equally if they hold the same positions.

Examples of gender discrimination in the workplace include:

  • Refusing to hire or promote someone based on their gender
  • Paying a male employee more than a female for the same position
  • Refusing to hire or promote a woman because she is pregnant
  • Refusing to hire a woman because she intends to become pregnant
  • Making unfounded assumptions based on an employee’s gender

By law, men and women are entitled to equal pay if they perform the same jobs in the same company. This not only refers to salary, but also bonuses, benefits, overtime pay and stock options. If you are being paid less than a coworker of the opposite sex even though you have been asked to perform the same duties, you may have a claim for gender discrimination.

Our Clients

  • From the beginning he spelled out my options, was very caring but no-nonsense, and explained what may or may not happen.

    “Andrew Dutkanych provided excellent legal counsel for me. I sought his counsel for an employment issue regarding harrassment and age discrimination and was both emotional and angry that my managerial position was being eroded and my duties systematically taken away. He carefully listened to my concerns and confirmed that I indeed had an EEOC case based on age discrimination. From the beginning he spelled out my options, was very caring but no-nonsense, and explained what may or may not happen. He filed all documents immediately, always returned phone calls or e-mails and successfully negotiated a settlement. Perhaps most importantly, he helped keep me calm when my employer was clearly increasing her harrassment in the hopes that I would quit or walk out. I would definitely recommend him and thank him again for his expertise!”

  • I am very thankful for his help!

    “I came to this firm after meeting with a different attorney who didn't seem very supportive of my case. When I met with Mr. Dutkanych he was very helpful and empathetic to my situation. My experience was great and I was educated every step of the way on what was being done and what to expect. Mr. Dutkanych was very timely in his responses and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. I am very thankful for his help! I would definitely recommend Biesecker, Dutkanych and Macer!”
