American society has come a long way since the days of open discrimination in the workplace. Unfortunately, racial, gender, and other forms of workplace discrimination are still far too common. The ways in which employees are discriminated against are more subtle today than in the past. Whether it is a promotion withheld, hurtful and hostile comments, or open bias, no worker should have to tolerate discrimination out of fear of losing her job.
The employment discrimination lawyers at Cohen & Cohen, PC fight for workers who suffer discrimination. We know that fairness in the workplace is a right everyone is entitled to. And we bring to bear decades of combined experience to ensure discriminated-against employees get the justice they deserve.
Virginia, Maryland, DC and the federal government all have laws expressly forbidding workplace discrimination. These laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, race, gender, disability, pregnancy, and other protections. Workers who suffer discrimination may be entitled to some or all of the following remedies:
Lost wages and benefits
Cease and desist orders against the employer
Damages for emotional distress
Reasonable attorney’s fees and costs
Expert witness fees
These are powerful tools for employees who have had their rights violated. But to succeed in such claims takes skill and toughness – traits the employment rights lawyers at Cohen & Cohen, PC have in spades.
