We believe that workers should be paid a living wage in an environment free of illegal discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Our employment discrimination lawyers represent employees who have suffered discrimination and/or harassment at work.

A. Some federal anti-discrimination laws applicable to employment are:

  • The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (disability);
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (age );
  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance);

  • Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (sex discrimination in federally funded education programs);
  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) (sex discrimination in the payment of wages);
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) (interference with or unfair treatment based upon use of FMLA-mandated medical, family or care-giving leave);
  • The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (PDA) (pregnancy);
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) (military service).
