Fighting Back Against Employee Retaliation And Discrimination
When employment discrimination issues arise, we take the most important side: yours. Lashly & Baer, P.C., represents private and public employers in race, age, sex, nationality, disability, and religion discrimination claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), before state human rights commissions, and in federal and state trial and appellate courts. We defend claims that an employer violated an employee’s constitutional rights.
No matter what legal issue you face, chances are we’ve encountered it before. We have extensive experience in the defense of employment claims arising under Title VII, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and the Missouri Human Rights Act.
For our public agency employment clients, we have experience in the defense of constitutional law claims. We regularly address legal issues involving affirmative action and everything from Title VII and workers’ compensation retaliation to state law tort claims against employers.
We regularly handle the following legal issues for our clients:
- Affirmative action
- Race discrimination
- Religious activities by employees
- Sex discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Whistleblower claims
