All Americans are entitled to a workplace free of discrimination or harassment. It’s one of the core tenets of law in the United States. The Law Offices of Harold I.

Our firm pursues claims under the following state and federal laws:
Most of these laws also make it illegal to retaliate against someone who claims discrimination or participates in a discrimination investigation.
How do you know if you have a case? The improper conduct may seem a clear violation of the law, but successfully navigating the many nuances of state and federal discrimination laws requires the help of an experienced employment lawyer. At the Law Offices of Harold I. Resnic, we understand that each case is unique. We know what is required to prove a discrimination case and conduct a thorough investigation to determine if the facts warrant filing a lawsuit.
Sometimes discrimination is subtle, and sometimes it is overt and persistent. That’s when discrimination creates a hostile work environment.

These are the requirements for filing a harassment suit:
If you believe you are the victim of discrimination or harassment, keep detailed notes of what was said or done, when and by whom, and then discuss your situation with an employment lawyer who has experience with discrimination claims.
