A Seattle Employment Discrimination Lawyer Making Your Workplace a Fair Place
Ensuring that employers make legal choices
Selecting on person over another is not always wrong. Generally speaking, there is nothing illegal about choosing Candidate A over Candidate B because A has a higher academic score or more experience in the industry. That is one reason discrimination cases are so hard to prove. Only an experienced Seattle employment lawyer can convince a jury that although your boss’s explanation for refusing you that promotion appeared to be innocent, appearances can be very deceiving. The Law Firm of Kallis & Associates P.C. thoroughly investigates your employer’s decisions and determines if there is a pattern of wrongful behavior. We are diligent in representing your best interests.
What are entry- and exit level decisions?
Have you ever had the feeling that applying to a certain company would be a waste of time, given your gender or background? Have you reported your manager for failing to take proper safety precautions at the worksite, only to be fired the next week? These are examples of entry- and exit–level decisions made by your employer. When hiring and firing is based on anything other than merit alone, illegal discrimination or wrongful termination probably exists. Whether the decision is based on age, gender, religion or race, it is illegal, and your employer should be held accountable.
What are some mid-level employment decisions?
A worker’s job status is revisited almost every day, and sometimes more than once a day. Every decision made is an opportunity for illegal discrimination.
