Have you been denied a job, terminated, or subjected to unacceptable working conditions due to unfair discrimination?
U.S. and Georgia law prohibit unfair workplace discrimination and allow you to challenge those illegal practices in court if necessary.
If you have been subject to illegal workplace discrimination in Georgia, then you may be able to recover compensation for your losses or obtain accommodations that will allow you to earn a livelihood with dignity and without fear of retaliation from your employer.
A variety of federal laws bar certain employers from discriminating against employees due to characteristics and circumstances beyond their control:
Georgia law additionally prohibits workplace discrimination based on age, disability, sex, and – for state agencies – race, color, disability, religion, or national origin. And many Georgia municipalities offer another layer of protection through their own laws and ordinances. Most of these laws also make it illegal to take retaliatory action against an employee for filing a workplace discrimination complaint.
The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Georgia Commission on Equal Opportunity (GCEO) both exist to enforce various workplace discrimination laws, and Georgia workplace discrimination lawyers will work with them to help an employee reach a settlement they deserve.
From filing the complaint to supporting the plaintiff through mediation and investigation, we stand beside our client each step of the way.
If a case cannot be resolved through the EEOC or GCEO, we are ready to take the case to court, hold employers accountable for their actions, and ensure that the employee gets the justice they deserve. From discovery, to settlement negotiations, to trial, any client of ours can proceed with the confidence that our experienced team is in their corner.
Workplace nondiscrimination laws and procedures can be complex, and complaints can be difficult to prove without the right attorney. Anyone impacted by discrimination in the workplace needs an Georgia workplace discrimination attorney who will stand with them throughout the process and fight for their right to work free of fear or humiliation.
