Informed counselors strive to enforce equal employment opportunity laws

If you believe you were barred from employment, passed up for promotion or otherwise treated unequally in your workplace due to your physical condition, identity, or stance against inappropriate behavior, you may be able to bring a valid discrimination claim. Federal, state and local laws may prevent employment discrimination based on, among other things:

  • Retaliation
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Immigration/Citizenship status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age
  • National origin
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetic information
  • Sexual harassment
  • Equal pay/compensation
  • Marital Status
  • Victims of domestic violence

At Braverman, PLLC, we carefully examine the details of your situation and advise you on whether or not your discrimination claim is likely to hold up in the eyes of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the national agency that exists to enforce anti-discrimination laws, or before similar state and local government agencies, or in subsequent civil litigation.
