If you have found yourself in an employment situation that you feel is unfair or discriminatory, it’s important to understand your rights. The attorneys at Burke Harvey have the experience and understanding of employment law to guide you to your best option for resolving the dispute.
Below are a few of the more common employer situations. However, we understand that each situation is different. Please feel free to contact us with your questions or for a free consultation.
Employment discrimination happens when an individual is treated unfavorably as a result of a characteristic that is unrelated to the performance of a job, such as race, color, sex or gender, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.
The federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws are designed to protect employees from unfair discrimination and include the provisions for the Americans with Disabilities Act, Equal Pay Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act and more.
If you feel that you have experienced employment discrimination on the basis of a characteristic that is unrelated to your job performance or as a qualified individual with a disability or if you feel that you are not being paid equal pay for equal work, you may have a case for discrimination.
The EEO laws are extensive and the procedures by which a claim of discrimination is processed can be demanding. Give us a call or click on the Live Chat button below to speak to an attorney about your case now.

Laws have been established to provide certain protections for particular situations such as the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, and the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994. Understanding your rights under the law is important to making the best decisions for you and your family. You don’t have to go through the process alone. The team at Burke Harvey has helped many individuals find resolution and restitution.
