Civil Rights and Employment Law — Watson & Moran LLC is at the forefront of plaintiff civil rights litigation. We vigorously, yet compassionately, fight for the rights of discrimination victims.
Civil rights entitle people to basic freedoms — freedom of travel, freedom to work, freedom to marry and have a family, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to be treated as an equal. Discrimination occurs when basic rights are denied because of race, age, sex, religion, pregnancy, nationality, sexual preference or physical limitations.
Our civil rights and employment law attorneys are well-versed in the constitutional issues and the intricate state and federal laws that relate to how employers must treat prospective, current and former employees. Our attorneys are experienced in handling claims involving employment discrimination, sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, affirmative action, racial discrimination, whistleblowers, the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act. We handle claims against government and private employers.
Watson & Moran LLC also represents clients in actions alleging discrimination in public places, including restaurants and gas stations.
In the 21st Century, discrimination should not be tolerated. At Watson & Moran LLC, we strive to make it so, one client at a time.
