Employment Discrimination
and Retaliation

Our firm is deeply committed to protecting workers from discrimination and retaliation. We have successfully brought individual lawsuits and class action lawsuits to vindicate the rights of employees and job applicants. We represent employees who face discrimination at work at every stage in the employment process: in the hiring process, in obtaining promotions, achieving pay equity, and in separating from employment.

We have won many significant cases on behalf of employees who have been discriminated against on the basis of disability, race, age, sex, and sexual orientation. We have also had significant victories on behalf of employees who have been retaliated against for raising issues of wage violations and discrimination, as well as First Amendment and whistleblower cases on behalf of employees who have suffered adverse actions and termination for engaging in protected activity.
