Discrimination Can Come in Many Forms

Discrimination in the workplace is not limited to a certain group of employees, it can affect anyone. It may take the form of a demotion, failure to promote, inappropriate jokes and comments, or simply disparate treatment between employees. When you feel that you have suffered discrimination, it is important to know your rights so that you can make informed decisions about whether or not to seek legal action. Whether you are interested in keeping your job or recovering a settlement, the attorneys at Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, can explain your legal options and help you fight for your rights.

Identifying Discrimination and Taking Action in Your Case

Discrimination could involve such subtle, pretextual actions as deliberately changing your job duties or job description so that you are forced to quit. It could involve a written evaluation that causes you to lose an opportunity or promotion. You could have been simply passed over for a promotion because of an illness, disability, or other classification. We will take the time to understand the unique facts of your case, guide you in collecting documentation, and handle your case while you are still an employee. We will explore your options with you and help you determine the best course of action to protect your career, long-term interests, and your rights.
