Atlanta Employment Discrimination Attorney
If you have been fired unjustly or discriminated against in the workplace, there is a good chance that you will have to file an EEOC claim and maybe even a lawsuit. It is important in these situations to retain an experienced trial attorney.
While employers have a great deal of discretion to hire, fire, promote and demote employees, there are several circumstances where employees who have been terminated or otherwise treated adversely can challenge their treatment in court. The most common examples include:
- Employment discrimination: If you have been fired, denied promotion or otherwise mistreated due to your race, religion, national origin, sex, or age, you may have a claim against your employer for employment discrimination.
- Sexual harassment: Harassment on the basis of sex can also be considered employment discrimination if it takes the form of a quid pro quo or creates a hostile work environment.
- Retaliatory discharge: If you have been fired because you complained about discrimination or otherwise tried to assert your legal rights, your discharge may be a case of illegal retaliation.
- Wrongful termination: If you have an employment contract that specifies that you can be terminated only for cause, our office can help you enforce that provision.
