Tailored Discrimination And Other Employment Law Services For Employees
A large portion of our employment law practice is dedicated to handling workplace discrimination cases. Unfortunately, discrimination is extremely common in workplaces across the country. When someone is treated differently by their employer based on the established protected classifications, such as age, gender, sex, race, religion, national origin, disability or others, it is discrimination. Just as we stand up for your civil rights, our attorneys also stand up for your rights in the workplace.
Discrimination can affect workers on all different levels, from a manager being denied a promotion to an applicant missing out on a job. It can be very obvious or very subtle. Regardless of the manner in which discrimination is happening at work, it is worth exploring your options in the situation. Whether you have brought the issue up with your employer or have not yet taken any action, we can assess your situation and help you explore your options.
We also handle other types of employment law issues, including:
- Hostile work environment
- Whistleblower cases
- Wage and hour disputes
- Overtime disagreements
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations
Why Should You Speak Up?
It can be difficult to make the decision to speak up when you believe discrimination or other illegal employment actions are taking place at work. However, it is important that employers and employees are held accountable when they are creating a hostile work environment. Documenting what is happening, making the issues known to management and seeking counsel from an insightful employment law lawyer helps not only you but also others. By raising the issue and taking action, you are helping to identify issues so they can be corrected, and the workplace culture can be changed, benefitting all employees.
