Madison Employment Discrimination Lawyer

Some of Wisconsin’s most notable employers mistreat their workers every day. Employment discrimination is particularly rampant. Upset by the prevalence of workplace discrimination and determined to defend Wisconsin’s fine employees, Steve Porter takes on challenging legal matters. A respected Madison employment discrimination attorney, he fights on behalf of wronged employees and strives to hold problematic employers accountable.

Types of Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination regularly occurs on the basis of several criteria, including the following:

  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Criminal and arrest record
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • Age
  • Marital status
  • Pregnancy

Wisconsin recently became a ‘ban the box’ state. Employers cannot include questions about criminal history on job applications, or seek such information during initial screening. The goal is to get prospective employers past the interview process before disclosing this information. Despite this legislation, many Wisconsin employers continue to ask about criminal history early in the application process.

Discrimination may occur in hiring (as ban the box legislation intends to address) or, just as frequently, in termination. Many employers terminate workers who complain about discriminatory conditions in the workplace. Still others demonstrate discriminatory behavior in granting pay raises or promotions.
