EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION

Proven Michigan Workplace Discrimination Lawyers

Discrimination tears at the heart of our society and undermines the American workplace. Those reporting or opposing illegal discrimination and pay inequality are protected from retaliation by state and federal law.

At Blanchard & Walker, we help employees in Ann Arbor and throughout Michigan pursue their legal rights. Our goal is to make sure you are compensated for the damages you have suffered and make sure your employer is held accountable for their adverse workplace actions such as:

  • Illegal performance disciplining
  • Denying you training or advancement opportunities
  • Demoting you or cutting your pay
  • Terminating you or threatening to terminate you
  • Creating a discriminatory work environment

Pursuing Justice for Discrimination Victims

If you believe you are being discriminated against at work due to your protected status, you have a legal claim to discuss. Our experienced employment law attorneys pursue employment discrimination claims stemming from discrimination such as:

Not sure if your case is actually discrimination? We can examine the facts of your case, determine if discrimination or retaliation is present, and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision on how to proceed. We will handle every facet of your claim and make sure appropriate actions are taken to preserve a Title VII claim via reporting to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Disciplinary Review Proceedings or Notice of Proposed Discipline

Blanchard & Walker attorneys regularly advise federal employees, health care, and higher education employees on employment discipline matters. For many, immediate review is essential, and deadlines may be short, from 7-day deadlines to file a grievance to 30 days to file an action with the Merit Systems Protection Board. In state court, the Michigan Whistleblower Protection Act requires any action to be filed within 90 days of an adverse employment action. It is essential that state and federal employees facing wrongful employment actions seek legal advice without delay. Blanchard & Walker attorneys regularly represent government employees in grievances, disciplinary actions, and state and federal court litigation. Getting prompt legal advice is essential in any such situation.
