Indianapolis Discrimination Attorneys
Assistance for Workers Experiencing Illegal Mistreatment
Many people believe they have a claim for employment discrimination because
of unequal treatment as a result of nepotism, favoritism, personality
conflicts, bullying or just plain unfairness. Merely having a bad boss
does not necessarily give you any legal rights underthe law.
However, there are a variety of ways you can experience unlawful discrimination in the workplace, which can be very subtle at times. That’s why it’s so important to hire a qualified, experienced lawyer like ours at Cleveland Lehner Cassidy who will honestly assess your case and resolution options.
