Fight For Compensation After Workplace Discrimination
Being the victim of unlawful discrimination at work can damage your career, ability to earn a living and mental well-being. State and federal laws prohibit this kind of workplace misconduct, but it is up to you to take legal action to enforce your rights.
I am attorney Diane Perez, and I have more than 15 years of experience and board certification from the Florida Bar in employment law. At my firm, Diane Perez, P.A., in Coral Gables, Florida, I have the skills, resources and knowledge you need to confront the employer that discriminated or harassed you or failed to stop it. Most of all, I will help you defend your rights and your career from illegal conduct.
Your Attorney For Any Workplace Discrimination Incident
Contact me if you have suffered any form of discrimination, harassment or retaliation from an employer, manager or co-worker, including:
- Refusing to hire or promote you, or grant you a raise you deserved, because of your race, sex, age, ethnicity, etc.
- Harassment related to your race, sex, age, religious beliefs, country of origin, or similar reasons
- Interference or retaliation related to your Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) rights
- Claims arising from noncompete/nonsolicitation agreements
- COBRA and ERISA interference claims
- Whistleblower claims
Retaliation occurs when an employer “punishes” a worker for requesting or using their legal rights, such as the right to take leave from work to care for a sick loved one under FMLA, or for reporting discrimination or harassment. Retaliation is against the law, and you could have a legal claim if your employer did it to you. The same is true if you were retaliated against for coming forward as a whistleblower to report illegal activity at your job.
Housing Discrimination Is Unacceptable
Another form of illegal discrimination can happen when you are looking for a place to live. Under state and federal law, you have the right to rent or buy a home without being subject to discrimination due to your race, sex, religion, citizenship status, national origin, disability status and more. If you have experienced housing discrimination from a landlord against your fair housing rights, I can help you fight for compensation. These are serious offenses, and you do not have to take this kind of treatment.
