Proven Washington, DC Workplace Discrimination Attorney
Unfair Treatment based on National Origin | Discrimination Directed at Immigrants | Hiring, Promotions, Raises and Other Benefits
Under the labor laws of the United States, employers are prohibited from treating workers differently based on their country of origin. Unfortunately, it still happens on a regular basis, particularly with the prevailing anti-immigrant sentiment in America. If you or someone you love has been rejected for a job, terminated, passed over for promotion or raise, or denied any other work-related benefit, and you believe it’s because of your status as an immigrant, you have a right to seek damages for your losses. We can help.
