Whether overt and malicious or inadvertent and unintended, discriminatory conduct or policies in the workplace can have catastrophic consequences for employers. Most employers understand that they can’t discriminate or make employment decisions based on such things as race, religion, age, or disability. However one incident, comment, or act can result in costly litigation or lengthy administrative proceedings.
Prohibited discrimination against protected classes of applicants and employees can take many forms and can arise in the context of:
- Recruitment practices
- Pre-employment inquiries
- Hiring practices
- Terms and conditions of employment
- Job assignments, promotion, and advancement
- Compensation and benefits
- Discipline and discharge
- Reasonable accommodation for disability or religion
- Harassment or hostile work environment
Efficient and Cost-Effective Employment Discrimination Representation
At Groisman Law, we understand that claims of employment discrimination often occur because of adverse employment or hiring decisions that were legal, legitimate, and unrelated to prohibited discrimination. We also know that such claims can involve conflicting accounts of events as well as complex legal and regulatory requirements at both the state and federal levels. Effectively handling such matters requires a team of lawyers who understand the complicated tenets of this area of law and know how to build a robust factual and in some cases procedural defense .
We work with employers throughout South Florida to resolve employment discrimination claims as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. While we thoroughly dissect the underlying facts and issues of specific claims, we also look at such claims holistically and in the broader context of a company’s overall operations and policies. Only by addressing allegations of discriminatory conduct through this wider lens can we not only resolve existing disputes but also help employers make the course corrections that can minimize the likelihood of such claims arising in the future.
