Handling Discrimination & Harassment for Individuals in the Workplace

Anyone who has lost their job understands how devastating that termination can be. Those feelings tend to be magnified tenfold when an employer treats a dedicated employee differently based on traits such as her race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, or physical abilities. Our Macon employment law attorneys can help you to face these workplace matters.

There are many ways that employees can be harassed or discriminated against in the workplace. However, there are a number of state and federal laws that have been enacted to protect employee’s rights and prohibit employers from engaging in unfair treatment. This area of law is one that continues to grow and expand, especially with regard to the prohibition of discrimination based on a worker’s sexual orientation and gender identity.

    "Satisfied client"
    I hired Ken Barton to help me through a pretty significant legal dispute that I experienced. Throughout the litigation, Ken communicated well with me and was very responsive, and I could tell that he really cared about my case. We got a decent outcome from the case, and I was able to move on with my life. I hope that I won’t need his services in the future, but I would definitely hire him again.
