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.

We Represent Both Employees and Employers, A Testament to Our Skills

Sommers Schwartz’s employment lawyers routinely represent employees in connection with claims of unlawful discrimination and retaliation, and we routinely counsel employers on employment discipline and termination decisions, and represent those employers in courtroom litigation as well as administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other state and federal agencies.

Contact a Sommers Schwartz attorney today to confidentially discuss your case and learn how we can help.

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job and were very understanding of my sensitive situation.

Your firm has tremendous skill and ethics.

Over the years I have referred cases to your firm in general and to Norm specifically knowing that the client would be handled with care and competence. I have always found that to be the case.

Bravo, Tucker!

I had a trial lawyer and judge in my office today and gave credit to you as the source of the information I provided them. They both recognized your excellence and authority and were duly impressed.
