Exceptions From Employment Discrimination Laws.
There are different federal and state laws to protect the workers against discrimination based on disability, age, gender, religion, race, etc…. However, like any other rules, there are limitations and exceptions in which an act is considered to be a discrimination or it is permitted. When an individual wants to file a Michigan employment discrimination case against his past employer, the best thing he can do is to get in touch with Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP, a labor law firm in Los Angeles. Before filing a suit against an employer, the worker should understand about the exceptions available and here are the details in this respect:
Unprotected classes: Generally, working force is protected against inequalities shown in the name of the colour, race, origin nation, age, gender and religion. But, if they are shown inequality under any other category like height and appearance, they cannot be protected from maltreatment via law. However, there are state laws that protect people against discrimination shown in the name of homosexuality.
If an employer gives preference to a particular class of people, the individuals falling under other classes cannot file a discrimination case, if the employer shows some valuable reasons for showing such partiality. For instance, if the employer says that the particular job needs some specific skills that are possessed only by a particular community of people, it cannot be said as discrimination.
Unreasonable accommodations: If the owner of a business, does not provide accommodations to the workers under protected grounds just because of the fact that it will cause an undue burden on his company or it will affect the operations of the company, it cannot be said as age discrimination.
