When your rights are violated

Discrimination in the workplace is an offense against your basic civil rights. When those rights are violated, you may choose to accept the violations and bear the burdens that come along with them. Or if you choose to educate someone for their discriminatory actions, you may find they are receptive and can change their behaviors. If the person proves to not be ignorant to the discrimination and subsequent violations of your rights, you may face retaliation, and you may simply have no choice but to take legal action against the discrimination.

You can go to Indiana's Civil Rights Commission, which is charged with protecting the rights each of the state's residents are legally obligated to be given. Indiana's office will typically endeavor to remove discrimination instances through strict enforcement of Indiana's civil rights laws. The cases handled by state commissioners usually involve housing and public accommodations in addition to employment claims. There are circumstances where you will legally be unable to file a lawsuit because you have not yet filed a government claim. Additionally, the claim type may have a way of demonstrating what court you need to file in, either in Indiana's courts or on a federal level.

When your rights are violated, and you have been victimized, you have numerous decisions to make, and many are heavily regulated with requirements. By enlisting the help of an attorney well versed in Indiana's civil rights you may find you are well prepared to set a precedent against such behaviors. Discrimination and violation of your rights are never okay and by holding offenders accountable, you are helping to reduce the hate persisting in society.
