Types of Employment Discrimination

Federal law classifies employment discrimination as any action or behavior that prohibits a person for being hired for and keeping a position based on their race, religion, age, sex, color, disability and genetic information.

There is a statue of limitations on the length of time that can pass before you can no longer file a complaint. Do not miss your opportunity to protect your best interests, and make things right under the law. We are here to defend and support you, explain each stage of the proceedings, and collect and prepare documents and evidence on your behalf.

Were You Involved in an Illegal Unlawful Termination?

While there are no federal laws specifically governing unlawful termination in the US, prosecutable cases are often a by-product of discrimination which is illegal in every state. If you have reason to believe you’ve been dismissed from your job for reasons which are considered discriminatory, we can assist you getting your claim started right away.
