Effective Washington, DC Employment Discrimination Attorney
Unfair or Different Treatment at Work Based on Religious Affiliation | Hiring, Firing and Promotions | Access to Benefits and Perks
The federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 extends the protections of the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to the workplace, making it illegal for employers to discriminate on the job based on an employee’s religious affiliation. Unfortunately, though, with the strong anti-Muslim sentiment currently in the United States, many employers still make critical workplace decisions based, to some extent, on perceptions of a person’s religious affiliation. It’s wrong, and at the Law Offices of Boniface K. Cobbina, PC, we are committed to protecting people from this type of action.
At the Law Offices of Boniface K. Cobbina, P.C., in Washington, D.C., we have been fighting for the rights of employees for more than 35 years, including men and women who have been improperly treated at work because of their religious beliefs or affiliation. We all have a need and a right to work—it helps us meet our financial needs, but it also offers a sense of dignity and self-respect. We’ll work hard to ensure that you are treated fairly on the job, and that you are fully compensated for any disparate or wrongful conduct. We understand that every case is different – we’ll take the time to learn the details of your situation, so that we can tailor our counsel to get the outcome you want. We have the skills and experience to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs, but we’ll also aggressively protect your rights in court, if necessary.
