Knowing How To Respond To Discrimination Claims
At The Moore Law Firm, L.L.P., in Paris, Texas, our employment law practice meets the needs of both employees and employers that require legal representation amid allegations of discriminatory workplace conditions, including hiring, promotion and firing practices.
Helping Workers Bring Discrimination Claims
Our attorneys represent plaintiffs in the following:
- Employment discrimination. State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on age, race, genders, sexual orientation or physical disability. If you were subjected to discrimination or sexual harassment at your workplace or if you employ a person who has made similar claim, we can represent you in negotiations, arbitration or in court.
- Wrongful termination. Even if you think your firing was unfair, it might not have been illegal. Let us review your circumstances, advise you regarding your legal options, and explore opportunities for getting compensation, reinstatement at your job, and/or remedies.
- Employment wage-hour disputes. Federal law entitles workers to receive at least minimum wage and to receive overtime pay when working more than 40 hours in a week. Our attorneys advocate for workers who seek compensation for unpaid overtime, labor, and commissions, or wages below the legal minimum.
- Retaliatory discharge. State and federal laws protect workers who are demoted, intimidated, suspended or fired in retaliation for legitimate actions. If you suspect you are being retaliated against because you filed a complaint with your human resources department, reported unsafe working conditions, took Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave from your job or filed a workers’ compensation claim, our attorneys may be able to secure a monetary judgment or settlement.
Defending Employers Against Discrimination Claims
In addition to representing plaintiffs in discrimination cases, our lawyers represent defendant employers when appropriate such as when an employee makes a false claim of sexual harassment in the workplace.
Further, we can assist employers in crafting policies designed to prevent discriminatory practices from taking root.
