In the United States, employees are protected from harassment,discrimination
and retaliation in the workplace. Unfortunately, many employers do not hold
themselves to this same standard.
At the law office of Kathlynne Ramirez, Esq. LLC, we believe in
protecting your rights to equal pay and equal treatment. Often, employees are
afraid to speak up against this mistreatment. Do not be afraid; you are not
alone. Our firm will stand by your side and fight for your rights throughout
your case. You can count on us to investigate your situation, interview
witnesses, gather documents, and index and file supporting paperwork. We have
designed our practice around protecting the well-being of our clients, and we
will explore every legal avenue possible to ensure you are treated fairly.
There are seven commonly recognized categories that are protected from discrimination:
RACE COLOR RELIGION SEX AGE DISABILITY NATIONAL ORIGIN
Even if the basis of your discrimination or harassment
does not fall into one of these categories, we encourage you to contact a
Maryland employment lawyer. We can still help in many of these situations.
Often, an individual will decide to proceed with an action without legal
representation. If you have made that decision, you should still contact our
firm. We will listen to the facts surrounding your troubles and provide legal
advice to help you organize your case.
Let Us Be Your Voice
Even though the United States government has passed many laws and regulations
guaranteeing your right to fair and equitable treatment in the workplace, not
all employers adhere to these rules. If you feel you have been discriminated
against or wrongfully terminated, we encourage you to contact a Maryland
employment law attorney.
Everyone deserves to be treated with fairness and
equality at work. We believe strongly in defending employees against
discrimination and mistreatment. At the law office of Kathlynne Ramirez, Esq. LLC, you can count on our personal service and individualized attention in your case. We strive to
provide an honest and realistic assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of
your case, and we will do everything we can to strengthen your case while
working toward a successful resolution of your dilemma.
