We represent employees working in any position in any occupation, industry, or sector.

Employee Rights

Employees face crucial legal challenges in their employment.

A vast disparity of resources exists most often between the employee and employer, i.e., a large corporate employer or government agency.

In any position, an employee has personal, professional, and financial interests at stake.

An employee should seek experienced employment counsel when a potential employment problem becomes apparent. Through counsel, the employee will learn of the rights and remedies in issue, and the proper procedures to address the problem.

Discrimination & Harassment & Hostile Work Environment

Employment discrimination is unlawful. Harassment, including a hostile work environment, is unlawful employment discrimination when based on a protected trait, i.e., race or sex.

Federal and Colorado law prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals on these bases:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National Origin
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Pregnancy | Childbirth | Related Medical Conditions

Retaliation

Federal and Colorado law prohibit an employer from discharging an employee because the employee:

  • Participated in an employment proceeding, such as filing a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Colorado Civil Rights Division.
  • Opposed discrimination under the law, such as filing an informal complaint of discrimination with the employer.
  • Participated in a proceeding by assisting, testifying, or participating in any investigation, litigation, or proceeding under the employment law, such as serving as a witness in an internal investigation of a discrimination charge or practice.
