Denver Workplace Discrimination Attorney
A workplace free of discrimination and harassment is a fundamental right of all employees. Unfortunately, some employers violate that right by turning a blind eye to hostility or engaging in unjust practices. If you believe that your employer discriminated against you or that you have been harassed at work, I am prepared to take action on your behalf. At The Law Office of Ralph E. Lamar, I am committed to defending employee rights in Colorado.
In this day and age, most employers do not explicitly state that they are firing or refusing to promote someone for discriminatory reasons. Instead, employers may give a nondiscriminatory reason for treating similarly situated people differently. An employment lawyer’s job is to prove that the reason the employer gave is false.
As a Denver workplace discrimination lawyer, I take the necessary steps to prove that discrimination has taken place by examining documentation and interviewing witnesses. I have more than 20 years of experience in employment law. I limit my practice so that I can devote a significant amount of time to each case.
In order to file a lawsuit alleging violations of federal law or state anti-discrimination law, you must file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 300 days of the most recent act of discrimination or the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD) within 180 days of the most recent act of discrimination. It is vitally important to file your EEOC claim or CCRD charge within this time frame. Documentation is equally important. Provide as much documentation as possible, as we will use it as the basis of your case.
