Discrimination / Retaliation / Wrongful Termination
It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against employees based on protected characteristics such as sex, disability, age, race, national origin, and religion. It is also illegal to retaliate against employees who complain about discrimination or who assert certain other protected rights at work. We prosecute claims involving sex discrimination, disability discrimination, age discrimination, race discrimination, national origin discrimination, religious discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination. Additionally, we represent past and present members of the military and uniformed services asserting employment rights under USERRA. We have extensive experience handling discrimination and retaliation claims. We provide representation at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or Florida Commission on Human Relations, and, after exhausting administrative remedies, we can pursue your claim in state or federal court.
At Weldon & Rothman, PL, our attorneys often handle discrimination and retaliation cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not owe us for attorneys’ fees unless we make a financial recovery on your case by settlement or judgment.
