EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION 101
Employment discrimination can be difficult to pinpoint. In fact, not all workplace discrimination is illegal. If you think you have been a victim of workplace discrimination, our experienced attorneys can help you decide if you have an employment claim.
Should I file a lawsuit if I think I have been discriminated against?
Potentially. Each case is different and it depends on what goals you want to achieve by pursuing a case. Sometimes pursuing a case and spending time, money, and stress over the situation is not worth the trouble. An employment lawyer will help you decide if a case is in your best interest.
If I decide to file a case, will I have to go to court or will the case settle outside of court?
A very low number of cases actually go to trial. Most cases settle outside of the courts. Defendants almost always file a “motion of summary judgement”, which means that the defendant asks the judge to dismiss the case without a trial. Employment discrimination cases are dismissed at rates higher than other types of cases, which means that you will likely settle outside of courts. An employment lawyer can help you evaluate the best option for your situation.

We handle several different types of cases, such as age, disability, sex and gender, race, and pregnancy discrimination. If you think you have been a victim of workplace discrimination, feel free to talk to one of our employment lawyers to determine if you have a case.
