Helping workers fight improperly motivated employment decisions
It is a sad surprise that workplace discrimination continues to be a major problem in the American workplace. And while obvious instances of discrimination are not as common as they were in the past, more subtle examples still abound. The Sanford Law Firm has helped numerous job applicants and employees in Arkansas and beyond fight instances of workplace discrimination. Our discrimination law attorneys work hard to understand our clients’ goals and expectations and help them gain vindication against employers who make decisions based on improper considerations of race, religion, gender, age and disability.
What is discrimination?
Discrimination is a broad term that covers more than what you might expect. Of course, it encompasses adverse decisions in hiring, firing, discipline and terms and conditions of employment based on impermissible considerations such as race, religion, gender, age and disability. But discrimination can also be unintentional, such as an employer policy of general application that has a disproportionate adverse effect on a particular group. An experienced Arkansas discrimination lawyers understands the law and can identify instances of discrimination and help clients take appropriate action.
Fighting all types of discrimination
Numerous state and federal laws prohibit employment discrimination in a variety of forms. These include the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
