Dedicated Missouri Attorneys Handle Workplace Discrimination
Persistent lawyers fight unfair employment practices in the St. Louis area
As an employee, you have the right to equal consideration for employment and treatment by employers. If your rights have been denied, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Joan M. Swartz will take action. On behalf of workers in the St. Louis area, we hold employers accountable when they discriminate in their hiring, promotion and compensation practices. No employee should be singled out or passed over based on personal characteristics or their decision to report employer wrongdoing. We help our clients throughout Missouri seek compensation for the pain and difficulties they have experienced due to their employers’ discriminatory actions.
Informed Missouri counselors strive to enforce equal employment opportunity laws
If you believe you were barred from employment, passed up for promotion or otherwise treated unequally in your workplace due to your physical condition, identity or stance against inappropriate behavior, you may be able to bring a valid discrimination claim. Federal laws prevent employment discrimination based on:
- National origin
- Genetic information
- Sexual harassment
- Equal pay/compensation
Additional protections for employees may be offered at the state level. Because laws are always shifting in regard to this area, it is best to contact a knowledgeable employment attorney to advise you on how current federal and Missouri laws apply to your case.
At the Law Offices of Joan M. Swartz, we carefully examine the details of your situation and advise you on whether or not your discrimination claim is likely to hold up in the eyes of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the national agency that exists to enforce anti-discrimination laws, or in subsequent civil litigation.
Experienced lawyers help wronged workers seek justice and compensation
Discrimination can take a serious toll on the people it affects, from limiting career and financial opportunities to causing substantial psychological stress.
