We don’t hide behind briefs and settle for you, we fight.
Any act of discrimination is completely unacceptable, and most are absolutely forbidden by the law. Unfortunately, discrimination happens more often than we think. It can be subtle or blatant and, frequently, it often happens at work. As an employee, you are always protected by Federal anti-discrimination laws, but some states also provide additional protection through more laws. How these laws are interpreted into real-life protection is complicated, but the lawyers at Liblang can help you understand these laws and what your rights and options are.
If you believe you have been discriminated against, it’s important to talk to one of our discrimination lawyers who specialize in exercising the rights provided to you under the strict anti-discrimination laws such as the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. Let us work with you to determine your best options to move forward with your case.
If you feel you might be the subject of discrimination, you should contact The Liblang Law Firm to discuss your case immediately: (248) 540-9270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

When should you file?
A discrimination charge must be filed with a local Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) before an attorney can file a private lawsuit. This claim must be filed within 180 days of the event to protect your guaranteed rights. This may seem like a lot of time but getting started early has benefits. The earlier you get started, the more details you will remember, and discrimination lawyers rely on strong evidence. Getting started early gives our lawyers enough time to thoroughly examine your case, gather evidence and present a case that gets you the results you need.
