Employment Discrimination

Every person, from workers to executives, has the right to a workplace that is free from discrimination and harassment and to be paid properly. An employee’s good-faith complaints must be investigated thoroughly and evenhandedly. All too often, employers retaliate against and punish those who stand up for their rights or the rights of others.

We have represented hundreds of women, men, and gender non-conforming individuals who were subjected to unlawful discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation on the basis of gender, race, national origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We also regularly represent workers in overtime, minimum wage, and whistleblower cases.

In re Utility Company

Represented seven women over the course of almost ten years who worked in non-traditional jobs and who were subjected to workplace harassment and continually denied the equal opportunity to advance within the Company. After obtaining successful findings for them before the EEOC, we worked extensively with a government agency and fought for them further in federal court to obtain significant money damages for individual plaintiffs as well as broad injunctive relief that required the Company to change its policies.
