Phoenix Workplace Discrimination Lawyers
Fighting for Justice in the Arizona Workplace
While many of us would like to believe that our country has progressed to a point at which all people are treated equally under the law, workplace discrimination still occurs in many industries. Fortunately, many kinds of employment discrimination are illegal under federal and Arizona laws.
- The Arizona Civil Rights Act
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- And the Age Discrimination in Employment Act ( this protects employees from various types of discrimination in the workplace)
If your employer has discriminated against you in hiring, firing, or while employed, you can do something about it. With the help of a skilled employment law attorney, you can file charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and, if necessary you can right the wrong through civil litigation.
At Weiler Law PLLC, our team is committed to fighting for justice in the workplace. We have dedicated our law practice to the mission of aggressively representing clients in claims and lawsuits against the unlawful actions of employers.

What Are Examples of Workplace Discrimination?
Examples of workplace discrimination include but are not limited to:
- Being terminated because of your race or pregnancy
- Being paid less for doing the same work as other employees because of your sex or disability
- Having your LGBT spouse denied company health insurance

How To Deal With Workplace Discrimination
Employment discrimination cases can be dealt with in a variety of ways. For example, you may start off by filing a complaint with your employer, supervisor, or human resources department.
These complaints can then be used to investigate and resolve the discriminatory actions. If that proves unsatisfactory, further action with the EEOC or a lawsuit in court may be needed.
Please refer to our EEOC Process page for further understanding of how we can help you file a charge with the EEOC.
