Racial Discrimination Attorneys Represent Workers And Businesses
Though a great deal of progress has been made in race relations over the last 60 years, we still find examples of behavior toward minority workers that is not only backward but patently illegal. If you are an employee who feels that you have been treated unfairly on the basis of race, or if you represent a company facing claims of discriminatory practices, our Chicago employment discrimination lawyers at Goldman & Ehrlich can help. With more than 65 years of collective experience, they provide sensitive yet aggressive legal representation in racial discrimination cases in Illinois and southwestern Michigan.
Discrimination Lawyers In Chicago Assert Workers’ Rights
Workers’ rights to a nondiscriminatory workplace are based on several sources, including federal statutes such as Title VII and state law such as the Illinois Human Rights Act. Our Chicago discrimination attorneys thoroughly understand these laws and the history of litigation under them. We know the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) claims processes. We can assess the merits of your case and estimate the potential damages that you might recover. With injunctive relief, a plaintiff may receive a court order reinstating your employment or awarding you a promotion that you were unfairly denied. In many cases, companies must pay employees for benefits – including raises, overtime and promotions – that were denied due to racial discrimination in Chicago.
If you have been a victim of racial discrimination, then you have the right to hire an attorney and get the compensation you deserve. Our lawyers at Goldman & Ehrlich are ready to help you win your fight. Call 312-332-6733 or fill out the online contact form to get started right away.
The Goldman & Ehrlich Difference: Personal Attention
While many discrimination lawyers in Chicago try to turn every work complaint into a class action or assign a younger associate to your case, Goldman & Ehrlich prefers to deal with clients individually. We realize that you have been specifically injured and that you deserve a remedy that pinpoints your concerns. Rather than subordinate your case to dozens or more of similar cases, we represent you as a unique individual, negotiating firmly with your employer and litigating aggressively if a settlement cannot be reached.
Defending Employers’ Rights To A Productive Workplace
Based on our 30 years of experience representing employees in discrimination cases, we understand what actions and decisions might be construed as discriminatory by an employee who feels that he or she was treated unfairly. We have successfully helped many businesses avoid potential lawsuits by making sure their decisions were based on consistent treatment of all employees and that they properly documented the reasons for any discipline taken against all employees. Goldman & Ehrlich can defend companies against allegations of discrimination while negotiating in good faith to achieve a better understanding between management and employees that raises morale and productivity.
