Jefferson City Employment Discrimination Lawyers
Employee Advocates in Discrimination, Harassment or Termination
As an employee or a job candidate, you are protected under state and federal laws from discrimination and retaliation. A workplace environment is only as friendly as the ownership, supervisors and coworkers of the company, and the Carson & Coil law firm helps employees demand justice and stand up to any workplace abuse.
Our Jefferson City employment lawyers have represented workers across central Missouri and statewide in lawsuits against employers for the emotional harm and financial impact that comes with workplace discrimination, sexual harassment or wrongful termination.
Jefferson City Employment Discrimination Attorneys
Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and subsequent federal legislation, workers are entitled to sue for legal remedies for:
- Discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin or religion
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination and failure to make reasonable accommodations
- Sexual harassment or sex discrimination
- FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) violations
- Whistleblower backlash and other retaliation
It is illegal to discriminate in hiring or in the workplace, and it is illegal to take adverse action against employees for getting pregnant, reporting illegal activity, reporting harassment, or filing claims or grievances.
Trial attorney Carla Holste has helped workers recover back pay, front pay and benefits for the economic harm from employment abuse as well as compensation for infliction of emotional distress or punitive damages. At Carson & Coil, we can guide you through the filing of a claim under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Missouri Commission on Human Rights, and we will represent you in a negotiated settlement or state court litigation.
