Civil Rights

Murray Law welcomes the opportunity to provide experienced counsel and representation to persons denied their civil rights.

Federal and Colorado civil rights and employment laws protect individuals from discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and the deprivation of constitutional and legally protected rights.

Federal and Colorado law prohibits employment discrimination because of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, religion, age, or disability.

We represent applicants, employees, and former employees for employment in private sector employment and federal, state, local government employment.

This practice represents clients asserting civil rights claims in federal and state courts lawsuits, charges with federal, state, and local government agencies, and arbitration and mediation proceedings.

Steven Murray has successfully represented individuals asserting civil rights and employment claims in cases before multiple United States District Courts, including representing prevailing clients in jury trials before the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.

Discrimination – Harassment – Retaliation

Unlawful discrimination involves an employer denying a person equal employment opportunity because of a protected trait or membership in a protected class.

Applicants and employees at every level of authority, in every position, are protected against unlawful discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.

The law protects individuals in private sector employment and federal, state, local government employment from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.

Harassment is unlawful discrimination when the objectionable conduct is based on a protected trait or class, such as race or sex.

The law prohibits retaliation by employers.

Unlawful retaliation involves an employer taking a materially adverse action against a person because the individual acted in opposition to discrimination or participated in a proceeding to investigate or enforce a specific law.

Deprivation of Constitutional Rights

Public sector employees may not be subjected to a deprivation of their constitutional rights in employment.

Adverse actions by a government agency may violate a public employee’s constitutional rights.

Depending on the specific facts in issue, a public employee’s following constitutional interests may be in issue when an employer acts:

  • Freedom of Expression
  • Freedom of Association
  • Freedom of Religion
  • Equal Protection of the Law
  • Due Process of Law

Any person believing a denial of constitutional rights has occurred, should contact counsel to learn the scope and protection of the rights violated.


Murray Law welcomes the opportunity to provide dedicated legal counsel and representation to any person denied their lawfully protected civil rights. Please contact Steven Murray at 720-600-6642.
