If you have suffered the misfortune of being a victim of workplace discrimination, you need someone who will fight fearlessly and aggressively to get you the settlement you deserve.
Workplace discrimination is real, and it happens more often than we’d like to think. Discrimination and harassment in the workplace can come in many forms. And although such misconduct can sometimes be overt, it can also be subtle or even concealed. This can include any action such as hiring, firing, demoting, sexual advances and promoting based on a prejudice of some kind that results in the unfair treatment of employees.
If you believe you have been discriminated against in the workplace, the worst thing you can do is remain silent. Contact me for a free consultation and we will sit together and discuss your experience. I am here for you, and I am on your side."
I litigated a landmark case in sexual discrimination and quid pro quo sexual harassment in Michigan. In Champion v. Nationwide Security, I won the case for my client who was raped by her supervisor after refusing to have sex with him to keep her job security.
My client was raped by an agent of her employer. The trial court threw the case out and the appeals court upheld that decision. I took that case all the way to the Michigan Supreme Court and won a favorable decision for my client. I fight tirelessly to the end because I believe my clients are worth it, and it is exactly how I would want to be treated is the situation was reversed.
Age: Many employers try to cut costs by hiring younger employees and letting someone go who has experience and seniority.
Race and sex: Racial discrimination and sexual discrimination are still more common than many people realize, but it is a violation of your rights if an employer discriminates against you because of your race or gender.
National origin and religion: Your national origin or religious beliefs should not play into an employer’s decisions regarding whether to hire, fire or promote you.
Weight: This is an overlooked basis for discrimination, but many employers will discriminate against someone who is overweight.
