acing discrimination in the workplace can be a traumatic experience. Many people in this situation wonder whether their experience really is discrimination, worry about their future prospects for employment if they file a claim, and fret over their rights and options. If you think you have been discriminated against at work, it is important to work with an experienced discrimination lawyer to discuss your options.
At the Law Office of Barbara J. Collins, we represent clients throughout Hartford County, Connecticut, in a range of employment law matters, including discrimination. Our Hartford workplace discrimination attorneys handle claims involving:
- Sexual orientation
With instances of racial discrimination and age discrimination, it is important to assess your case before bringing a claim. Not every instance of firing or refusal to hire a person in a protected class rises to the level of discrimination. An experienced attorney from our firm can discuss your case with you, help you determine whether you have a viable claim and determine the best strategy going forward.
When a client believes he or she has been discriminated against in the workplace, we sit down with the client, listen to the story and offer initial counseling. We discuss the various options available to the client and develop a strategy for proceeding.
Our lawyers are prepared to represent your interests through mediation or litigation. If appropriate, we will work to preserve the relationship with the employer or negotiate an exit strategy with the employer. In many cases, we are able to negotiate an outcome that is fair, equitable and appropriate under the circumstances. When mediation and negotiation are not viable options, we are prepared to represent our clients' interests aggressively in the courtroom.
Making the choice to litigate a claim is no small decision. When handled in the courtroom, a legal claim can take years to resolve and be prohibitively expensive. Rather than rushing into the courtroom, we will take the time to discuss the pros and cons of your legal options. We want you to make an informed choice when it comes to litigation.
