Civil Litigation FAQs
Employment discrimination is unfair treatment, harassment, retaliation, or dismissal from your job on the basis of a certain aspect of your identity. Several areas fall under employment discrimination, including:
- Race or national origin
- Sex, including gender identity and sexual orientation
- Age (if you are 40 or older)
- Genetic information (such as results of genetic testing or your family medical history)
If you feel you were fired or laid off for a reason other than what was given to you, you may have the basis for an employment discrimination case.
An intentional tort is like negligence, but the accusing party (plaintiff) must show that the defendant intended to cause harm. When a wrongful act is committed against you intentionally, as opposed to being the result of negligence or accident, you may have an intentional tort case.
One example of an intentional tort is assault and battery. Other examples of intentional torts include false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, trespass to land or personal property, and conversion (wrongful taking or use of someone else's property).
Defamation is a catch-all phrase that covers slander, libel, traducement, calumny, and vilification.
Libel is when someone writes an untruth that harmed you in a significant way; slander is when someone speaks an untruth that harmed you in a significant way. The harm must cause you financial issues or damage your reputation—it can’t simply hurt your feelings.
Vilification is a public act or statement that provokes hatred or contempt against another person or group of people based on their race, gender, religion, or other protected personal details.
