Discrimination & Harassment Attorneys

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and subsequently enacted federal and state laws protect certain classes of employees from discriminatory and retaliatory treatment by employers. When these rights are violated, employees can seek remedy for lost earnings, career impact, damage to reputation and emotional distress. When a group of employees experiences similar mistreatment, they may band together in a class action to seek relief through the courts.

The law firm of Miller Shah LLP has extensive experience in class actions and collective litigation alleging employment discrimination or harassment, as well as individual lawsuits for wrongful termination and other retaliation against victims of discrimination or whistleblowers. Our lawyers have represented corporations and public employers facing employment class actions and other suits, and we have likewise served as lead counsel for plaintiff groups in class actions for discrimination. In advocating for employees, Miller Shah has recovered millions of dollars for the tangible harm suffered.

Employment Discrimination Litigation

Our labor and employment law attorneys are well-versed in the applicable federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Equal Pay Act, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), False Claims Act and other statutes.

We can initiate or defend legal action relating to:

  • Disability discrimination or failure to accommodate
  • Employment discrimination on the basis of age, race or color, ethnicity, religion, gender or sexual identity
  • Pregnancy, maternity leave or family leave
  • Sexual harassment
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Workforce reductions
  • Wrongful discharge or constructive discharge

Discrimination may involve differential treatment in hiring, pay, job duties, promotion, disciplinary measures, layoffs and termination. Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination and may involve sexual assault or touching, unwelcome advances, quid pro quo demands, physical or psychological bullying, exposure to demeaning images or language, and other behavior which creates a hostile work environment. Retaliation and wrongful termination may stem from reporting harassment, filing claims, taking leave, refusing to engage in illegal conduct or reporting fraud or criminal actions to government authorities.

Our employment law attorneys concentrate especially in California, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but we have multiple offices throughout the United States, including Florida and New York, and Miller Shah has litigated discrimination and harassment claims in many state and federal courts. We can also address such lawsuits in the United Kingdom and the European Union.
