Discrimination in the workplace
Did you know that there are laws that prohibit an employer to treat you unfavorably, or take adverse actions against you on account of the following?
- Age (actual or perceived)
- National origin
- Gender (actual or perceived)
- Disability (actual or perceived)

In the realm of workplace discrimination, not making haste to protect your rights can truly make waste- of your time, money, and energy. The time to seek an attorney is the moment you feel that you are discriminated against.
You need not wait till you are fired. For those individuals who don’t want to create bad blood with their employer while still employed there, there are numerous options available to you, besides filing a lawsuit.
At this firm, we lay out all your options, including but not limited to filing a lawsuit, based on your unique employment relationship and career trajectory.
To avoid complicating your life and multiplying the stress that you no doubt are suffering as a result of discrimination in the workplace, do make an appointment for a consultation with us before you go to Human Resources, or your direct supervisor, to lodge your complaint. You will be grateful you did so!
Consult rather than catastrophize.
Vindicate- don’t jeopardize- your rights
