What Type Of Discrimination Were You Harmed By?

Under the law, employment discrimination based on certain protected characteristics isn’t acceptable. These characteristics include:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Sex or gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Religion or national origin
  • Disability

But employers continue to engage in treating certain employees unfairly because of these characteristics. You may have been targeted for wrongful termination. Or you may have been unfairly demoted or denied opportunities for advancement.

Discrimination like this isn’t right and it can be challenged. The same is true of harmful or unwelcome conduct that amounts to harassment. This includes not only sexual harassment, but also harassment based on other protected characteristics.

Our law firm stands ready to take your side and strongly assert your rights. We have the litigation skills to hold employers accountable, and help you pursue both tangible compensation and a sense of justice.
