Aggressive Representation In Sexual Orientation Discrimination Cases
If you have suffered employment discrimination because of your sexual orientation or retaliation in the workplace, you have rights. Our firm can represent you, seeking justice and compensation for the wrongs done to you.
A key factor in any discrimination case is determining what the motivations of the employer are. Our lawyers will undertake a comprehensive investigation of the facts surrounding your case. We will seek the best possible result for you in court, in settlement negotiations or in administrative venues. Reisner & King will fight for your rights and dignity every step of the way.
Harassment By Nonemployees
While many companies have instituted LGBT-friendly policies, that does not always prevent vendors, contractors and visitors to workplaces from engaging in harassing behavior. The employer, however, is under the same obligation to act against harassment by nonemployees as it is to prevent harassment by employees.
Whether you are being harassed by an employee or a nonemployee, you should file a complaint with your Human Resources department. You should also contact Reisner & King to learn about your legal options.
