Discrimination & Harassment

Harassment is any form of conduct that intimidates, frightens, annoys, and/or threatens a person. Discrimination is unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex. Discrimination and harassment can take many forms.


Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination is when an employer fires an employee under direct violation of federal, state, and/or local laws. If there was a breach of contract on the employers behalf, that also falls under this category.


Sexual Harassment

Any unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. There are two different sexual harassment claim types, and each state varies with their protection laws.


Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination occurs when an employer or other entity covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Rehabilitation Act treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an employee or applicant unfavorably because the person has a disability.

EEOC Practice & Guidelines

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has strict guidelines in all aspects of the hiring, employment, and firing process. EEOC enforces federal laws that make discrimination against an applicant or employee illegal when it is based on age, sex (pregnancy, gender identity, sexual orientation), race, color, disability, religion, national origin, and/or genetic information. It is important for you to understand your rights and know when they are being violated. We follow the EEOC practices throughout our entire process.

We regularly work on cases involving EEOC guidelines, such as harassment (including sexual harassment), wrongful termination, retaliation, Title IX discrimination, as well as discrimination based on race, sex, nation of origin, age, or pregnancy.
