Workplace Discrimination Is Illegal. Stand Up for Your Rights.
Employment discrimination involves the different treatment of employees based on age, race, sex, gender, pregnancy, religion or other protected classes under federal law. At Sterling Employment Law, our Detroit attorneys for discrimination claims are dedicated to helping victims of discrimination protect their rights and collect proper compensation for discrimination committed by an employer. If you believe that you have been treated wrongfully or unfairly based on your status as a protected class member, you should seek legal advice.
We can help you protect your rights in the workplace and contest the discriminatory actions of your employer. We will work to get you the compensation you deserve. Call 888-486-6305 to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.
Protecting the Rights of At-Will Employees
Many at-will employees think that there is nothing they can do when they are fired. In reality, even at-will employees are often protected from discrimination, violations of civil rights, retaliation and other unfair employment practices. We can help you enforce your rights.
At Sterling Employment Law, our lawyers have extensive experience handling all types of wrongful termination cases, including cases involving:
- Race discrimination
- National origin and religious discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Gender/sex discrimination
- Discrimination based on sexual orientation
- Disability discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination and denial of protection under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
It’s important to note that discrimination does not always take the form of termination. Many people find themselves passed over for promotions due to a discriminatory reason or face a hostile work environment.
Get Legal Help Before You Are Fired
If you suspect you are facing termination for a discriminatory purpose, our attorneys can assist you in pretermination strategy, so you can protect your rights. We will put you in control so you can collect the appropriate evidence against your employer and build a strong case for discrimination.
Employers often have their own in-house counsel to deal with employment issues. As an employee, if you feel that you are being victimized in the workplace, you should have your own lawyer to help level the playing field and protect your rights before your employment is terminated. Even if you are offered severance, we can review the offer to determine whether it is in your best interest or if another course of action should be sought against your employer.
