Discrimination & Harassment

If you are an employee who has experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace, you know all too well how painful and career-altering such conduct can be.  Generally, discrimination means less favorable treatment because of a bias against someone based on age, gender/sex, disability, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity.  Discrimination can take many forms and can negatively affect your hiring, conditions of employment, compensation, or prospects for promotion. It can even get you fired.

Harassment involves conduct by the employer, supervisor, or co-worker that includes unwelcome advances or other conduct that is so offensive, intimidating, or abusive that it changes your work environment or even affects your performance.  We understand that harassment in the workplace can take many forms, and can dramatically harm your relationship with the employer, your opportunities for success at your job, and your emotional and physical well-being.

Outten & Golden’s attorneys represent employees who have suffered illegal discrimination and/or harassment in the workplace.  We are well-versed in the federal, state, and local laws, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, that offer varying degrees of protection for employees, as well as the federal and state agencies and courts where discrimination and/or harassment claims can be filed, such as the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  We work with our clients to evaluate their discrimination and/or harassment claims and to identify and reach their goals in attaining justice for the wrong done to them.  To learn more about our firm and about the types of discrimination and harassment prohibited under the law, please click on the specific practice areas listed on the left side of this page.
