Discrimination Is Injustice. It Has No Place At Work.
You work hard to earn a living, but no matter what you do, your boss or co-workers fail to respect and recognize you. If you suspect that discrimination is the cause of your unfair treatment at work, do not hesitate to speak with an attorney about your options.
I started Weiss Law Firm PLLC to stand up for Washington workers who face unfair treatment in their careers. With nearly 30 years of legal experience, I know what it takes to protect you and your job. Review your situation with me to determine whether you have a potential employment discrimination claim.
There Is More Than One Way To Discriminate
The legal description of discrimination is unfair treatment based on a protected class. Protected classes are your race, religion, ethnicity, disability, nationality, gender, sexuality, age, and pregnancy or parenthood.
Discrimination can take on many forms, including:
- Verbal, physical or sexual harassment
- Pay cuts, unfair wage gaps, demotion or refusal to fairly promote
- Refusal to hire solely based on a protected class, asking discriminatory interview questions or recruiting in a discriminatory manner
- Wrongful termination of certain workers, such as layoffs skewed toward older employees
- Refusal to make reasonable accommodations for a disability
- Denial or uneven distribution of employee benefits, such as medical or parental leave
- Creation of a hostile work environment through unfair limitations or barriers to completing your work
No matter how overt or subtle discriminatory acts may be, I understand how hurtful they can be to you both personally and professionally. Prejudice should not stand in the way of your career.
Due to my own blindness in one eye, I have a special interest in protecting workers with disabilities. However, I have compassion for all employees who face unlawful discrimination – no matter what they are up against.
I Am On Your Side
Human resources departments typically serve the interests of the company – not the employee. Getting a legal advocate of your own is crucial.
Sometimes, it is necessary to seek relief through external means. I can help you file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and represent you in a discrimination lawsuit or mediation. As a former prosecutor, my trial experience allows me to build a comprehensive litigation strategy for employees.
