Determined Arkansas Lawyers Assist with Discrimination Cases
Accomplished Little Rock law firm asserts employees’ rights
The experienced attorneys of McMath Woods P.A. in Little Rock advocate for employees who have been victimized by adverse job actions due to their race, sex, age or another specified personal characteristic. Our firm has assisted Arkansas clients since 1953, giving us the skill and experience to develop strong cases on behalf of mistreated workers even when employers attempt to make legal excuses for their decisions. Our extensive knowledge of federal and state regulations offers you an advantage; we know the law and we know how to use it on your behalf to obtain justice and appropriate compensation.
Attorneys help clients seek justice for all types of unfair treatment
Our Little Rock employment law attorneys represent victims of all types of job discrimination, including unfair treatment based on:
- Race and national origin — Workers of every racial and ethnic background deserve the right to be judged on their own merits. Firm lawyers deliver strong advocacy for mistreated employees in litigation and before government authorities.
- Religion — Our firm defends the fundamental constitutional rights of people to worship as they wish. This can include securing time off work for religious observances.
- Age — Federal age discrimination laws bar businesses with more than 20 employees from discriminating against older workers. If you are 40 years old or older, we can advise you of your rights, even if you were given another reason for the action taken against you.
Because the time period to pursue a possible discrimination case can be as short as 180 days, it is important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible if you suspect you’ve been discriminated against.
Dedicated advocates litigate claims relating to sexual discrimination and pregnancy
Discrimination on the basis of gender is prohibited by federal law and the Arkansas Civil Rights Act. This protection extends to mistreatment based on a woman’s pregnancy or related medical conditions. Employers often try to mask sexual discrimination by formulating a false justification for decisions on hiring, pay or promotions. Our knowledgeable attorneys can review the facts in your case and develop the strongest possible argument if your gender was a factor in an adverse job decision.
Skilled counselors challenge mistreatment of disabled workers
The Americans with Disabilities Act protects employees who can perform their job functions from being denied employment because of a physical limitation. Employers must take reasonable steps to meet the needs of disabled employees. Determining what constitutes a required accommodation can be a tricky process, however, requiring attorneys who understand the relevant federal and state laws. We will conduct a thorough review of your circumstances and help you obtain a fair resolution if you are being unfairly discriminated against because of a disability.
