Discrimination and harassment are pervasive in the workplace. If you have been hurt at work due to your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information then you have rights. But to sue in federal court you are required to bring a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). You can go through this process alone, or with an experienced employment lawyer who has brought EEOC charges and successfully mediated cases with the EEOC. You may ultimately receive a right to sue and then you can bring a lawsuit in federal court for damages, including lost wages and emotional distress. With us, you pay no attorneys' fees unless you win your case.
Family and Medical Leave
Employers with more than 50 workers must provide leave for medical care and family care under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If you are terminated for taking leave then we can immediately file a lawsuit on your behalf. You can recover lost wages and attorney's fees. You need not file a charge with the EEOC. We have experience bringing these claims in federal court.
Most states, like Illinois and New York, are at-will employment states. This means you can be fired for any reason or no reason at all. However, there are exceptions when the cause is hurting a protected class, retaliating against workers compensation claimants, terminating workers in mass layoffs without warning, or firing in violation of a contract. You should consult with a lawyer if you believe you were wrongfully terminated.
