People Often Contact Us When Discrimination Is Making Work Intolerable

We often hear from people who have experienced blatant or subtle negative effects of discrimination on the job on the basis of:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex, gender or sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy
  • Age (over 40)
  • Veteran status
  • Disability (as long as you can perform job functions with reasonable accommodations, if necessary)

You may be willing to overlook occasional nuanced insults from co-workers. but when your emotional health and/or income are on the line, you owe it to yourself to learn how to asset your rights and get justice and relief.

Our employment lawyers can evaluate your case and help you plan a strategy for protecting yourself in the face of illegal discrimination at work.

Let Us Hear About The Discrimination You Have Experienced

Have you been terminated, demoted or penalized through no fault of your own? You may not just suspect discrimination. You know it has happened when you have lost your job as a form of retaliation. Perhaps you were fired immediately after you reported sexual harassment, observed an important religious holiday on your own time or took a legally mandated family or medical leave. Now you need a plan of action to get your job back, recover unpaid wages or restore your good standing at work. That is exactly what we can help you with.
