QUESTIONS FOR YOUR EMPLOYMENT LAW ATTORNEY

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with filing an employment discrimination or wrongful termination lawsuit. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

Who is protected from workplace discrimination?

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission protects workers from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, age (40 or older), disability and genetic information (including family medical history).

Employment discrimination includes less favorable treatment with respect to hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

These cases require a deep knowledge of employment law to be successful. Your attorney will fight for you by talking to you about what happened, interviewing witnesses, and gathering paperwork and evidence about the discrimination.
We will be honest with you about how the legal system works and possible avenues to explore to seek justice. Our attorneys present different options to you, but you decide what steps you want us to take.

Every day, we meet with people who are picking up the pieces of their life after a tragedy. We understand how tough this can be, and we won't pressure you into doing anything you don't want to do at any step.

How long do employment lawsuits take?

If your case goes to trial, it can take between nine and 18 months to complete your case. Many cases settle out of court before we file a formal complaint, which would take less time.

What kind of damages are awarded in an age discrimination lawsuit?

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against workers who are 40 or older. Most states also have laws to support older workers. If you are the victim of workplace age discrimination, you deserve justice. Our lawyers can help you with your age-discrimination case and seek compensation for the following:

Lost wages, both past and future, including salary, bonuses, commission, and tips.
Lost benefits, such as health insurance, time off, and stock options.
Emotional distress, if state law allows.
Punitive damages for particularly malicious discrimination, if state law allows.

Why do most employment lawsuits settle out of court?

Your attorney can share the benefits and risks of going to trial for your specific case, but here are some general reasons clients choose to settle out of court:

Lawsuits come with risks. You may lose your case entirely, or a jury could award damages that are less than you would get in a settlement.
Timing. Trials take more time, which means you may not receive compensation as quickly as you would like. Having a pending lawsuit also prevents you from closing this difficult chapter of your life.
Privacy. The results of your lawsuit become part of the public record, which may not feel comfortable to you.
