Title VII, ADA, ADEA
Discrimination claims under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), ADEA (Age Discrimination in Employment Act) and Title VII are the most common causes of employment law disputes. Pursuant to Title VII, an individual may bring a cause of action for discrimination based on race, gender, religion or national origin. Gender discrimination under Title VII includes claims for sexual harassment (quid pro quo or hostile work environment).
To avoid lawsuits for alleged violations of these and other employment laws, there are a number of important steps employers must take, including the use of correct training procedures, required postings, investigation procedures for employee complaints, and appropriate hiring, promotion and termination policies.
If an employee has filed or threatened to file a cause of action in state or federal court, it is important to retain an attorney to protect his or her rights and interests. The attorneys at our firm have 150 years of collective legal experience and decades of litigation experience. If your company needs experienced counsel on any employment matter, our attorneys can help.
As experienced negotiators and trial lawyers, we believe our experience offers a distinct advantage to the individual and corporate clients we serve, allows us to quickly analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each case, and to anticipate the arguments of opposing counsel.
