Employers wield substantial power over their employees. It can be very stressful to go up against a business that has chosen to discriminate against you or look the other way while you are being harassed. If you have been mistreated at your workplace, it is important to retain a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to guide you through the process of either filing a charge or suing in court.
