North Dakota Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Larson Law Firm in Minot North Dakota can help clients who have been discriminated against in their place of employment.

Discrimination, Wrongful Termination, and Other Employment Law Issues

At Larson Law Firm P.C., we act as aggressive advocates for employees who are harmed by discrimination in the workplace. We are personally committed to seeking full justice in these employment discrimination matters:

  • Racial and Ethnic Discrimination
  • Sex Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Pregnancy Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination
  • Retaliation Cases
  • Equal Pay and Compensation Cases
  • Wrongful Termination

As an employee, you are protected from discriminatory acts in the workplace under both state and federal statutes. These laws include:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • Equal Pay Act
  • Age Discrimination Employment Act
  • Title I of the American with Disabilities Act
  • Sections 102 and 103 of the Civil Rights Act of 1991
  • SC Title 1 Labor and Employment Statutes

If you have been a victim of any form of discrimination, it is your right to seek compensation for what happened. We urge you to connect with our firm at once so we can get your case into motion. We will seek the maximum amount of compensation possible, based upon the facts and the extent of the damages. The amount we pursue could include various forms of compensation, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Front pay (compensation may be ordered to continue until re-employed or reinstated)
  • Health insurance costs
  • Court costs
  • Lawyer fees
  • Damages for emotional distress, pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages (money paid to employee to punish the employer for wrongdoing)

The Emotional Impact of Employment Discrimination

We need our jobs to earn a living and support our families. The fear of retaliation or losing employment has led many workers to endure ongoing acts of discrimination. The personal devastation and emotional damage caused by discrimination can have a long term impact on your self esteem and sense of self worth.

The damages sought by our firm will extend beyond your lost wages; we seek compensation for the emotional anguish you suffered as a victim of acts of harassment or discrimination. It is time to hold the responsible parties accountable and we can help you to seek justice.

You cannot legally be fired for reporting discrimination. Even so, many people are hesitant to report even the most flagrant violations of rights, whether it is a situation of ongoing sexual harassment in the form of comments or jokes, or worse, demands for sexual favors, or being forced to listen to constant comments about race, religion, age or other similar illegal act of discrimination. You may have had to deal with being passed over for advancement even if you are far more qualified than the chosen candidate, whether due to your sex, race, age or religion. These issues are important and you have every right to seek justice.

How Discrimination Cases are Resolved

Each case is unique with regard to which laws were violated, the extent of the acts of discrimination, and the long term impact upon the individual. At our firm, we thoroughly review every detail about what happened, what parties at your place of employment participated in or allowed the discriminatory acts to continue, and whether any actions were taken to resolve the situation.

A “Charge of Discrimination” may be filed with the EOCC (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). The process may then move into the mediation phase. If the mediation is not successful and there has been no resolution, an investigator will be given the case. If the investigation does not identify a violation, you can then advance to the ability to file suit in civil court.

If a violation of rights has been identified in the investigation, there will be an effort to arrange a settlement between you and your employer (or former employer). The negotiation phase is a critical issue, and you will need legal representation that has the ability to be effective, aggressive and to press hard to arrange a fair settlement.
