If an employee files a discrimination claim, there will be an investigation into what happened that caused them to make their claim. That employee shouldn’t have been discriminated against, but what happens to their case if the investigation finds that particular employee had instances of misconduct before their claim? This is known as after-acquired evidence, and courts have a difficult time deciding how much the previous misconduct plays into their case.

When you hire an employment lawyer from McMath Woods, P.A. you can feel confident in your workplace discrimination claim. We’ll make sure that your rights are protected, and that you get justice for the mistreatment that you endured in your workplace.
