Did Your Employer Violate The Law?
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, age and gender, including pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions. Similarly, the Equal Pay Act prohibits employers and unions from paying different wages based on an employee’s sex. The precedent set by the Civil Rights Act and other anti-discrimination law allows employees to gain recompense for denial of equal rights to employment. To combat these types of discrimination, a claim must be made through the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Racial discrimination occurs anytime an employer singles out someone and treats him or her differently based on skin color or physical characteristics associated with race. Consult with a Florida racial discrimination lawyer to determine if you have a case given your experience with racial discrimination.
To fully understand your rights if you suspect you are a victim of discrimination due to your gender, consult with a Tampa gender discrimination lawyer. It is unlawful for your employer to discriminate against you based on your gender. If you faced gender or sex discrimination in the workplace, it is important to understand your rights.
Sexual harassment is an assault on a person’s dignity and worth. It can be emotionally scarring and even physically debilitating. Despite efforts to eliminate sexual harassment from the workplace, offending behavior continues and victims seek recourse through the law.
When an employee comes to our age discrimination attorneys concerned that a potential employer was influenced by their age in their hiring decision, we immediately begin to investigate. Under state and federal laws, employers are not allowed to discriminate on the basis of age.
When clients come to our disability discrimination attorneys with concerns that their disability was the reason they were not hired, we look for violation of the ADA. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) created important protections for workers with physical or mental impairments, or a history of disability.
Our Florida pregnancy discrimination attorneys rely on the Pregnancy Discrimination Act which is an amendment to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It outlawed sex discrimination. The 1978 federal legislation was a specific response to the harassment, retaliation and prejudicial treatment of women who became pregnant while employed.
What Our Clients Say/
Mr. Feldman and his staff are a great law firm to work with. Mr. Feldman took my medical case when i had been turned down by so many other attorneys. Mr. Feldman’s put me at ease when I thought all was lost. Thanks to Mr. Feldman and his staff I won my case.
All I can say is Great Job! After speaking with Mitch Feldman and Roxanna, after I said Yes to their services, our case went on auto pilot (for me). They took care of everything. Once an offer was made, Mitch said we can do better and we did. Soon after, a check arrived in our mailbox. Recommending this Law Firm seems to be a no brainer for anyone who wants to Win.
Mr. Feldman let opposing counsel know that he wasn’t going to back down no matter what they threw at him, through his expertise, thoroughness and dogged tenacity. He brought my case to a satisfying conclusion. You can trust this highly intelligent and knowledgeable attorney. He’s nice too.
Mitchel L. Feldman is an excellent attorney. He actually listens to you and he is prompt with a response. It is amazing in today’s world of instant communication that so few actually respond in a prompt manner and even if they do, they don’t actually listen to what you have to say. Thank you Mr. Feldman for being prompt, attentive, concise and solving my contractual issue without litigation.
