workplace-discriminationPivotal Law Group, located in Seattle, has the experience and knowledge necessary to tackle the tough issues surrounding claims of discrimination or harassment in the workplace. We represent both employees and employers in an effort to remedy and end discriminatory practices.

We represent employees who have been discriminated against or harassed in the workplace because of age, gender, race or national origin, disability, pregnancy, religion, or sexual orientation. We also handle sexual harassment cases and matters on behalf of individuals who speak out against or “blow-the-whistle” on their employers for discriminatory practices or fraud. Discriminatory practices can include, but are not limited to, harassment, bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, compensation, and wrongful termination.

We also represent employers, providing them with pro-active counseling and guidance and investigating claims and allegations involving employee discrimination. We can help your company develop and establish discrimination and harassment prevention programs and policies, thus avoiding unnecessary conflict and litigation.

If you or your company have any questions regarding employment law and employment discrimination, pleasecontact one of our employment discrimination attorneys.
