Most people spend the majority of their waking hours at work. The best and most effective workplaces treat every employee with respect and dignity. People are hired and promoted on the basis of ability. Discrimination and harassment have no place in the best workplaces.
Unfortunately, not every workplace follows the law. When that is the case, when employees face unfair employment practices, Girardi | Keese attorneys have the experience, ability and passion to stand up against even the biggest employers in court.
When the Girardi | Keese law firm takes an employment law case to court, we know how to present the case so that the jury understands the issues, as we did for a loyal employee accused by his boss of being only “half a man” after his injuries. Call 800-401-4530 to request a consultation.
Most jurors have worked, and they know how managers can retaliate against a worker who reports problems. Most jurors have seen what happens when people are treated differently because of gender, age or race. Even if they have never witnessed problems, they understand the dynamics of the workplace. Nearly everyone has worked for someone else at some time.
Our lawyers have dealt with discrimination in police departments and fire departments. We have represented employees from health care organizations, manufacturing plants and offices. Time and again in employment cases, it is the cover-up and the denial that there was ever any discrimination, harassment or wage and hour violations that often prove the case.
The lawyers of Girardi | Keese want all employees to be treated fairly under the law. The laws are in place, but they are only as strong as the efforts of those to enforce the law. When employees and their lawyers insist on fairness, we will have better workplaces for everyone.
