Pinewood Injury Law is committed to protecting workplace rights. We work hard to ensure that our clients are compensated for being singled out inappropriately. We represent those who have been discriminated against in the workplace for any protected reason.
Discrimination the workplace can come in many forms. There are laws in place to protect against at least the following types of discrimination:
“I worked with Cate and she was excellent! She was extremely thorough, patient and responsive. Cate is a phenomenal attorney and I’d use her again and again!”
If you believe that you have been treated negatively in the workplace for a reason protected under the law, you may be entitled to damages under the law. Depending on the state and situation, you may be able to recover back pay, front pay, lost benefits (e.g., health insurance, vacation, sick leave, pension, etc.), amounts to compensate you for your loss or punitive damages (i.e., damages in an amount intended to punish your employer). In some situations, you may even be able to get your job back or get accommodations in your workplace.
There are deadlines within which lawsuits must be filed or the right to file them is lost forever. That is why it is important to contact an attorney immediately if you believe you have been wrongfully discriminated against in the workplace. An attorney can make sure all related evidence is preserved and make sure that your case is filed within all applicable deadlines.
