We Are Here To Protect Your Rights
You have rights in the workplace. With the fear of being demoted or losing a job and in the face of employers who seem to hold all the cards, some people forget that they have a right to be free from discrimination and harassment at work. You have rights, and if your rights have been violated, you need the help of an experienced legal team to help you protect yourself.
That is what we do: At Roxanne Conlin & Associates, P.C., in Des Moines, Iowa, we protect the rights of clients who have suffered the indignity of harassment or discrimination in the workplace. Lead attorney Roxanne Conlin has decades of experience fighting for an end to discrimination of all kinds. She tried the first case ever tried under the Iowa Civil Rights Act. Ironworkers v. Hart and has tried hundreds of cases since. As the second woman to ever serve as a United States Attorney, in the U.S., she knows the challenges faced by those fighting to break through the barriers of sex and race discrimination. She has fought this battle, and she knows how to win.
We understand the challenges you are facing with harassment and discrimination in the workplace. We offer empathetic yet highly professional and experienced legal resources to protect your rights at work.
Fighting For You In The Workplace
At Roxanne Conlin & Associates, P.C., we represent clients in claims involving discrimination and harassment, including:
- Age discrimination: It is unfortunately common practice for many employers to discriminate against older people as a matter of course. This discrimination can take the form of refusal to hire, refusal to promote and firing. For many companies, it is simply easier and cheaper to get rid of the older employees and hire younger, less expensive workers instead. This is illegal, and our attorneys can fight for you if you have experienced this type of discrimination.
- Racial discrimination: Similar to age discrimination, racial discrimination involves not hiring, not promoting or firing someone because of their race. This is an embarrassing and illegal practice.
- Sexual harassment and sex discrimination: It is surprising that sex discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace is still so common. But it is. Women in the workplace deserve equal pay for equal work, and everyone deserves to be free from sex discrimination and sexual harassment in all its forms.
If you suffered discrimination or harassment in the workplace, it is important to talk with an attorney as soon as possible. Not every firing or failure to promote is an instance of discrimination, for example. Our lawyers will discuss your situation with you and determine whether you have a viable legal claim.
