Discrimination

Whether it be defending or prosecuting a wrongful termination, sexual harassment, failure to promote or a hostile work environment claim, the attorneys at Birdsong & Armstrong have generally represented employers, but in certain instances employees have sought us out. Any of these and more based on sex, disability, age, race, nationality, ethnicity, or sexual orientation may violate the federal or state anti-discrimination laws. We have recovered compensation for employees facing job discrimination. We have negotiated severance packages representing both employers and employees in various matters. We have handled matters such as employee discipline and severance, discrimination claims and litigation, employment contracts, non-compete agreements, confidentiality agreements, whistle blowing, and other employment-related issues. For business owners, we counsel small and large businesses to avoid sexual harassment claims, including drafting and advising regarding anti-discrimination policies and employment agreements, policies and training.
