Employment discrimination can take many forms. You may face employment discrimination because you’re female, or over the age of 40, or you may be dismissed without cause and not know the reason. The Sturdevant Law Firm represents employees who have been discriminated against on the basis of gender, race, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, and religion. Employment discrimination refers to bias on any of these bases in hiring, promotion, job assignment, wrongful termination, and compensation. Employees are protected from such bias under state and federal law and, in some instances, under the U.S. Constitution and various state constitutions.
Our firm also handles sexual harassment cases, including cases in which an employee is subject to a hostile work environment, and “whistleblower” cases involving individuals who are subjected to discrimination for blowing the whistle on their employers for defrauding the government or other violations of the law.
It is important for you to know that in discrimination cases there are very specific statutes of limitations. Statutes of limitations are deadlines that must be strictly followed and delay may result in a loss of your rights. For links to agencies with specific information, please see Resources.
