Discrimination & Harassment

Class Actions

Outten & Golden attorneys represent employees across industries who have been victims of unlawful discrimination in the workplace, including harassment by their employers. When an employer implements a company-wide policy that discriminates against a group of similar employees, a class action lawsuit is the most effective and efficient vehicle for vindicating workers’ rights. Through class action litigation, employees can get the type and breadth of data necessary to prove that an employer has violated the law against them as a group and create company-wide changes to prevent future violations. 

Class action litigation requires a particular expertise, resources, and skills to prosecute successfully. Outten & Golden has represented hundreds of workers in successful class actions, against some of the largest corporations in America, protecting the rights of women, people of color, and others to be free from unlawful discrimination and harassment in the workplace.

A Plan to Cut Costs and Crime: Curb Bias Against Ex-Convicts

The New York Times—Timothy Williams and Tanzina Vega

James White had steeled himself for the moment. But when he got to the question on the job application — Have you ever been convicted of a crime? — he shifted nervously in his seat.

If he checked the “yes” box, he would almost certainly not get the job as a hospital janitor.

He checked the box.

A moment later, a human resources employee looking over his shoulder told him not to bother with the rest of the form. “She said I should stop right there, that there was no need to continue filling out the application because I was done with the process,” he said.
