Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits and employer from discriminating against an employee based on race, color, sex, religion, and national origin. Despite this law being on the book for more than forty years, some employers still violate their employees rights daily. Some examples of employment discrimination include:
- Promotion or Demotion based solely upon race, color, sex, religion, or national origin
- Preferential treatment based on protected classes (race, color, sex, religion, national origin)
- Selective application of company rules and policies against people of different classes
- Discriminate application of the Family Medical Leave Act
If you have suffered discrimination in employment the first place we will take your case is the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). We will present your case to the EEOC and seek a favorable ruling. If we are able to obtain a favorable ruling it is very likely your employer will appeal. If for some reason we do not succeed at the EEOC hearing we will be given a “Right to Sue” letter. This legally allows us to file suit against your employer in Federal Court. Once we file suit against your employer we begin the litigation process. Hopefully, before we have to take your case to trial, your employer will see and recognize their wrongs. Many cases are settled early before the case is ever brought to court.
However, if an employer refuses to admit their wrong and settle your case, we are prepared to take your case to trial. We are experienced in litigation and will take you case to trial before a jury if necessary.
