Detroit Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Discrimination in the workplace, whether in the form of gender discrimination, race discrimination, or some other bias or prejudice is a violation of your civil rights.

Employment discrimination claims are often the most difficult, factually complex, and emotionally charged cases, but that doesn’t dissuade our skilled employment attorneys. If you’ve been the victim of discrimination on the job or are being accused of discrimination in your workplace, give us a call – we’re ready to step up to the plate and fight on your behalf.

Different Types of Workplace Discrimination

By law, an employer may not terminate an employee’s job based on any the following factors:

  • Race
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Gender or Sexual Orientation
  • National Origin
  • Disability or Genetic Information
  • Pregnancy
  • Leave Under the Family & Medical Leave Act

Federal laws including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), state laws such as Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, and other legislation governing these types of discrimination claims are complex and ever-evolving. Our experienced attorneys have represented numerous employees in pursuing and maximizing their claims.

I appreciate the team effort provided.

I would like you gentlemen to know that for those of us that have been violated and need legal assistance, we must often wait for justice in quiet desperation. As such, the words I used above “confidence and comfort” came only from you and your team.

Andy Dragovic is an outstanding trial attorney!

I needed representation from an attorney who was empathetic and effective. Andrija Dragovic proved to be that attorney time and time again. He was clearly dedicated to finding justice, explored my options every step of the way, and respected all my decisions regarding the case.

I will always appreciate your professional approach.

I believe that you were very professional. More important, you were patient with respect to my lack of experience in this situation. You took time to explain why one path was better than another. You listened carefully and offered sound advice and counsel.

You and your entire staff were very professional.

You were committed to customer satisfaction and it showed through your leadership. Your insightfulness, experience and performance, provided me with much support and confidence. Thank you!

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate you! From our first conversation on the phone, I knew you truly believed me, and I felt comfortable sharing very personal and painful information with you. This was one of the hardest things that I’ve been through, but you made…

There are no words for my gratitude.

I want to thank you again for what you have done for my family. There are no words for my gratitude. I will forever be grateful.

Please extend my gratitude.

Going through this process was a totally new experience for me, but the way you and your firm conducted it was certainly reassuring. Please extend my gratitude to all the people involved.

Your ability, understanding, and compassion are truly remarkable.

Your ability, understanding, compassion and at time dispassionate way of speaking for those who no longer can speak for themselves are truly remarkable.
