DiscriminationEmployers are not allowed to discriminate against employees or potential employees on the basis of race, religion, gender, disability or national origin. Unfortunately, this type of discrimination still occurs, and the laws that protect employees can be complicated. With over 45 years of experience, our office knows the law and can help you understand your rights.
Types of employment discrimination cases we handle include:
|• Race/national origin discrimination|
• Age discrimination
|• Sex discrimination |
• Sexual harassment
|• Disability discrimination|
MilitaryUSERRA, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act provides special rights and protections to employees who serve their country in the armed services. Our office has received extensive media coverage for our groundbreaking work protecting the reemployment rights of veterans returning from active duty. If you believe you are being discriminated against by an employer because of your military service, contact us for a free consultation.
Government EmployeesGovernment Employees have special rights provided by federal and state law. These include protections for employees who report government abuses or engage in constitutionally protected activities such as political activity, religious activity, free speech or litigation. If you are a government employee who has been discriminated against because you reported an abuse or engaged in protected activity, call us for a free consultation.
Other Employment IssuesThe employer/employee relationship can break down for other reasons as well. Employers fail to honor their contractual obligations, fight former employee’s valid unemployment compensation claims, improperly calculate wages, overtime or bonus payments or refuse to provide promised benefits. If you think your employer has violated your rights or your employment agreement, our office can help you figure out what you are entitled to.
