What is Discrimination?
In the legal context, discrimination is the unlawful treatment of a person or group based on characteristics over which they often have no control. These characteristics are race, age, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, or marital status. Landlords, business owners, and other individuals/organizations cannot discriminate or refuse service based on these factors. Overall, discrimination is a form of infringement on your civil rights. It is generally important to have a civil rights attorney with experience that you can rely on.
If you feel that you or your loved one is being discriminated against, consult a civil rights lawyer to discuss your options.
