Various federal statutes and the Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD) prohibit racism and national-origin discrimination in the form of unequal pay, failure to promote qualified candidates, retaliation, racial harassment, and hostile work environment.
Earning a living should never involve the indignities of discrimination based on the color of your skin or the place of your birth. The attorneys at Schroeter Goldmark & Bender have worked tirelessly on behalf of their clients to safeguard the right to a discrimination-free workplace. If you have faced racial harassment or illegal discrimination in the workplace, we may be able to help you recover your lost wages and benefits as well as compensation for emotional distress caused by discriminatory treatment. In particularly egregious cases, certain claims under federal law allow you to recover punitive damages against your employer.
When to file
You have a limited time to protect your legal claims; failure to take action within a certain period of time (depending on the claim and where you work) may bar you from ever filing your case in court. SGB can help you determine the relevant filing deadlines for your case. Learn more about filing a discrimination claim.
