Even though laws against discrimination have been in place since 1964, discrimination still occurs. The attorneys at Hopson & Parris have been fighting workplace discrimination since 1985. Discrimination based on age, race and disability is prohibited by state and federal law. Our attorneys help victims of discrimination gain closure and recover settlements for their suffering.
Claims of age discrimination are becoming more and more prevalent. Some companies force older employees to retire while others disproportionately target older employees in layoffs. Denying benefits to older employees is also a form of discrimination. Employers are also prohibited from retaliating against employees who file discrimination claims.
If you feel that you were discriminated against based on your age, know that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects employees over 40 years of age from discrimination. Our attorneys will take forceful action to enforce your rights under the ADEA.
Hopkinsville Racial Discrimination Attorneys
Though race-based discrimination has been against the law since the civil rights movement, it still is a very serious problem. If you were refused a job, fired or turned down for a promotion based on your race, the law protects you. Our attorneys will work to enforce your rights to the fullest extent of the law.
Remedial legislation enacted by Congress has strengthened claims for discrimination based on disability. If you were refused a job or your employer refused to make reasonable accommodations for your disability, you may be able to pursue a discrimination claim.
Family And Medical Leave Act Violations
Employees are guaranteed the right to take time off from work in order to care for family members under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If you were fired for taking time off, our lawyers can fight to obtain back pay, emotional damages and get you reinstated.
