We regularly handle federal statutory discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims as well as state counterparts and state wrongful discharge claims. Our many years of experience and our wide variety of clients and cases provide depth and breadth to our practice from traditional Title VII claims based on race, color, sex, national origin, or religion, to disability and age discrimination, and discrimination based on other factors, such as whistleblower activities or service requirements for National Guard or military reserves.
We work with clients to respond to claims made as charges with government agencies, such as the EEOC or a state counterpart, and we litigate cases on behalf of our clients if the employee or government agency pursues the matter in court or arbitration.
We also advise federal contractors on compliance with Executive Order 11246 through the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the implementation of Affirmative Action Plans.
