Civil rights laws are the laws that give all of us the right to be free from certain types of discrimination. There are some distinct civil rights protections in the state of Colorado in addition to those protections available through federal civil rights laws. Civil rights laws give certain protected classes of people legal protection when others try to discriminate against them based on the distinct characteristics of each class.
As a full service law firm, at Dickson Law Group we are well versed in the intricacies of CIVIL RIGHTS LAW and the rights of individuals especially those who are in protected classes of people. We will aggressively pursue your protections under both federal civil rights laws and those that are distinct civil rights protections under Colorado Law.
"The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit." ~ "U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission - About the EEOC: Overview", Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [US], https://www.eeoc.gov/, Accessed 07/26/2019
