It is absolutely illegal, under both federal law and the laws of the state of New Hampshire, for an employer to discriminate against an individual in the workplace based on factors such as their race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, or religion. Discrimination is wrong in any setting but can be most damaging in the workplace. Employees should feel comfortable with their employer under all circumstances.

Workers Compensation and Other Claims
It may be in your best interest to seek the help of an employment lawyer if you have been injured on the job. While most employers handle workers compensation claims in house, an employment lawyer can step in should your employer refusing to act on the workers compensation claim process or is showing a lack of interest. You may be entitled to wages while out of work as well as getting all of your medical bills paid for. Every employee has the right to treatment after a workplace regardless of who is at fault. Other claims that employment lawyers can assist with are issues with wages, employment contracts, wrongful termination, or sexual harassment concerns.
