Workplace Discrimination Representation
State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees, former employees or job applicants on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, or religion. Laws also protect individuals against discrimination based on disability, age, and pregnancy.
At the law office of Winston Cooks in Birmingham, Alabama, our experienced employment law attorneys advocate aggressively for individuals who have been impacted by discrimination in the workplace. These protections apply to all decisions regarding hiring, terminating, paying, promoting, transferring, reviewing, disciplining, and training employees.
Depending upon the circumstances of the case, we may seek reinstatement, back pay, compensatory damages, punitive damages, and legal fees. Workers who suffer retaliation or a hostile work environment after filing a discrimination lawsuit have legal recourse, even if their discrimination case was unsuccessful.
