Advocating For Employees’ Rights
Here at the law office of John R. Williams and Associates, LLC, we represent employees who have been discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, disability or national origin under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We also represent government employees who have been disciplined unfairly or because of whistleblowing or union activities. We only represent the rights of employees. We never have and never will represent management.
If your employer has discriminated against you because of your race, religion, gender or ethnic group affiliation, they have violated federal law and are subject to severe penalties.
You Have A Right To Be Free From Discrimination
The following factors are protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990:
- National origin
Additionally, it is illegal to discriminate against individuals because of their sexual orientation under Connecticut state law. If you have been discriminated against on the basis of any of the above factors, we want you to know that help is out there. Our law office features highly experienced employment law lawyers who can answer your questions about employment law. We have been representing the rights of people like you for over 50 years.
Over 50 Years Of Experience In Employment Law
We know the system and can successfully bring your case through pretrial, trial and appeals. We have represented many prominent victims of employment discrimination and made their former employers realize that the cost of discrimination is high.
Some examples of our firm’s work in this field include Dobosz v. Walsh, 892 F.2d 1135 (2d Cir. 1988) in which we successfully represented a police officer who was harassed and discriminated against because of his role in exposing police corruption to the FBI; Reed v. Town of Branford, 949 F. Supp. 87 (D. Conn. 1996) in which our firm successfully represented a victim of age discrimination who was subject to harassment in the workplace; and Jennings v. Town of Stratford, 263 F. Supp. 3d 391 (D. Conn. 2017), in which a federal jury agreed that the Town of Stratford retaliated against a police officer’s right of free speech and awarded him $1.5 million in punitive damages and $1 million in compensatory damages.
