Protecting Employees From Unlawful Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace
At GoransonKing PLLC, we are committed to defending your rights in the workplace, including your right to work in a safe, nonhostile environment, and to work in an environment where you have a fair and equal chance of advancement. We have represented hundreds of individuals and groups in actions and claims against private and government employers, including the U.S. Post Office, state of Texas and city of Houston.
If you are being treated differently because of your race, religion, national origin, disability, or age, gender or sexual orientation, you may have a claim for unlawful discrimination. Likewise, inappropriate touching and a generally hostile work environment based on gender; or a “quid quo pro” situation in which a superior demands sexual favors in exchange for job retention, job advancement and other benefits are another form of discrimination that violates both state and federal law.
We can investigate your allegation or the allegation of your group and, if appropriate, contact your employer, work to negotiate a settlement, or file and litigate a claim in court. Lawyer Linda King isboard certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Labor and Employment law, and is a member of the Labor and Employment sections of the Texas, American and Houston Bar Associations.
