  • Discrimination
  • Wrongful termination
  • Sexual harassment

Challenging discrimination in the workplace

Employment should be based upon your skills, knowledge and experience, not on arbitrary characteristics that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Employers are prohibited from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination, types of assignments and pay. When making decisions, employers cannot legally consider:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Disability

By applying extensive knowledge of state and federal labor and employment laws, GRAFF LAW OFFICES redresses the discrimination and levels the employment playing field.

Fighting against sexual harassment

You do not have to put up with unwelcome sexual advances, sexist comments, or degrading images and emails at your workplace. These are examples of sexual harassment, which is illegal. Sexual harassment creates an unpleasant employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position. Although women are most commonly targeted, men can be victims of sexual harassment as well. Responsible parties can include coworkers, supervisors and the company entity. Harassment can take the form of physical contact, visual images, email transmissions, general derogatory statements or unwanted romantic overtures. GRAFF LAW OFFICES advocates for your right to work in a professional environment free from harassment.
