AboutAbout This Course

There are numerous laws and regulations that seek to protect persons from being discriminated against. One must first establish if the act constitutes as being discriminatory.  Lecturer, Melissa Holtzer, Esq., an expert in employment-related disputes, does an excellent job in explaining the different federal anti-discrimination laws and the types of discrimination claims that exist. Furthermore, she goes into detail regarding the burden of proof on both, the employer and employee. This course explores the unlawful act of retaliating against an employee for rightfully making a discrimination complaint. The lecture concludes with a discussion regarding the damages one can claim in pursuit of a discrimination case, as well as what changes may take place with anti-discrimination laws in the near future.
