An employment law case is a legal claim against an employer because of adverse and unlawful employment action. The case seeks to hold the employer accountable for violating your rights. An employment law case states what the other side did to violate your rights. In the claim, you request an appropriate remedy that typically includes financial compensation.

Here are some reasons that you may have an employment law claim:

  • Race discrimination
  • Sex/gender discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination
  • Adverse treatment because of age
  • Unlawful treatment because of pregnancy
  • Illegal termination
  • National origin discrimination
  • Unequal treatment because of your religion or creed
  • Military status discrimination or violation of laws that apply to veterans and employees in the armed services
  • Retaliation for filing a complaint of discrimination
  • Hostile work environment
  • Unsafe workplace
  • Unpaid wages and unequal pay claims
  • A failure to provide reasonable accommodations based on a disability
  • Violation of an employment contract
  • Failure to provide benefits that employees are due under the law

An unlawful employment action may be a decision that involves hiring or firing. It may involve the assignment of job duties. It may also apply to pay and working conditions.

Sometimes, an employer is unaware of the laws that apply to them. However, in other cases, employers deliberately violate the law. Neither situation is acceptable. Whatever the circumstances, our aggressive lawyers can fight for your right to a fair workplace. We can help you determine what your options are and pursue your case to the fullest extent of the law.

Fort Collins employment claims are based on federal, state and local laws. The City of Fort Collins in Colorado has non-discrimination protections for residents so that a victim may file a complaint for investigation with the City of Fort Collins

Local laws are only the beginning. The State of Colorado and the United States also have non-discrimination laws. There are several ways that it may be appropriate to pursue an employment law claim, including by filing in court or by filing a report with the right government agency. How you pursue your claim depends on the case’s facts and the law that applies to that particular issue. Our attorneys for Fort Collins employment law help you identify the law and assert your rights.

The remedy that you can win in a Fort Collins employment law case depends on what has occurred. Here are some of the things that may be available to you:

  • Reinstatement to your previous position
  • Accommodations to make the work environment fair
  • Safety modifications
  • An injunction to change conditions that were discriminatory at work
  • Compensatory damages for lost wages, promotions, etc
  • Back pay/benefits
  • Pain and suffering compensation

The goal of your legal claim is to put you in the same position that you would have been in if the unlawful employment action had not occurred. That may take the form of makeup pay that you were shorted based on the employer’s actions. It might be an injunction that prevents the company from engaging in illegal activities in the future.
