Discrimination in the Workplace (Title VII)

Have you faced retaliation because you reported discrimination? Have you been denied a position or a promotion due to your age or because you are pregnant?  Are you the victim of wrongful termination because of your gender, race, age, disability, or religion? Are you treated differently because you don’t conform to traditional gender norms?

Many discrimination cases occur when an employer takes action against a worker and the employee has reason to suspect that his or her employer may have been motivated by gender, age, race, religion, or sex. The actions taken to resolve the dispute vary based on your desired outcome and your individual circumstances. In some situations, we may be able to resolve the problem through negotiation with your employer. In a discriminatory discharge case, we may be able to achieve reinstatement if you want your old job back. In many cases, however, the best options will be to negotiate a severance package or file a lawsuit for damages if you have evidence to prove discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, gender, national origin, disability, or age.
