Grand Rapids Employment Discrimination Attorney

If you’re a victim of workplace discrimination, if you’ve been sexually harassed, if you’ve had your right to privacy in the workplace violated, or if you’ve been fired because you stood up for your right to work in a safe, non-discriminatory workplace, I can help. I stand up against workplace injustice and inequality and fight for the protections that you’ve worked so hard to earn. Contact me for a free consultation and case evaluation.

I protect employees’ rights by representing employees in the following practice areas:

  • Employment Discrimination: I work to protect employees from employment discrimination and harassment, including racial discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, gender discrimination, family responsibilities (parent / caregiver) discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and retaliation.
  • Medical Leave / Disability: I help employees enforce their rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other state and federal laws that protect employees’ medical leave and disability rights.
  • Whistle-blower Claims: Both state and federal laws prohibit an employer from taking any adverse action against an employee who reports or threatens to report fraud, safety violations, discrimination, or criminal activity.

If you think you’ve been the victim of discrimination, if you’re being sexually harassed, or if you’re being threatened with termination or demotion because you’re trying to do the right thing, you have only a brief period of time during which you must take the proper actions to protect your rights. Often times, the first two steps you need to take are contacting the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Michigan Department of Civil Rights to file a claim. Information regarding how to file a charge of employment discrimination with each agency can be found here (EEOC) and here (MDCR).

If you’d like to schedule a free, confidential consultation with a Michigan employment attorney to explore your options, or if you’d just like to find out whether such a consultation would be worth your time, contact me online or call me at 616-606-5296 (LAW-6). I am always available to consult with clients in whatever manner is most convenient to them, including by video-conference.
