We deliver counsel that is tailored to your needs and press for a prompt, favorable result.
Advocates seek relief in race, religion, gender, age and disability claims
Workplace discrimination can be a highly personal matter, and each situation is unique. You can rely on our Texas lawyers to battle for compensatory damages or other types of relief if you’re the victim of discrimination. At each stage of your proceeding, we give you personal attention in cases involving:
- Race, color and national origin — Starting with Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, discrimination based on race, color and national origin has been prohibited. Though employers sometimes offer innocent explanations for biased decisions on hiring, firing and promotions, we conduct a comprehensive review to counter false justifications and find the truth behind an adverse job action.
- Religion — The First Amendment to the Constitution protects religious freedom, but some workers still face bias based on their beliefs. Whether you’ve lost a job due to your faith or have been prevented from taking part in a religious observance, our firm will make every effort to assert your rights and obtain appropriate relief.
- Gender and pregnancy — Women who aren’t receiving equal pay or have been wrongly denied a job due to their gender have legal recourse. We take on businesses that fail to honor their legal obligations and pursue damages for lost pay and other types of harm. This includes situations where women are victimized in the workplace because they are pregnant or planning to have a child.
- Age — Workers age 40 and older who face bias because of their age are eligible to initiate a claim under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) if they are a public employee or their private employer has at least 15 workers. When older employees are let go or shifted to a job that doesn’t suit their skills or experience in an effort to force them out, we can file a claim with the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) Civil Rights Division.
- Disability — In most instances, companies are required to make reasonable accommodations for disabled employees who can still perform their job functions. Our lawyers can explain what steps might be considered reasonable and will press for justice under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), if necessary.
Our employment lawyers are well versed in the rules that govern Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and TWC matters. No matter how tough the circumstances might seem, we’ll provide the support and confidence you need to get what you deserve.
