Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation in the Workplace

Defending our clients against claims and minimizing exposure

Our attorneys have significant experience defending against claims of discrimination and harassment, and preventing those claims in the first place.

The employment attorneys at Parsons Behle & Latimer have successfully defended a wide range of employers against harassment and discrimination claims, as well as related claims of retaliation. We defend against charges and complaints based on race, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation and pregnancy in a variety of settings - administrative proceedings and federal and state courts, as well as in arbitrations and grievance hearings.

Our employment litigation attorneys also counsel employers about how to avoid such suits in the first place. We work with clients to develop and implement policies and procedures to prevent harassment, discrimination, and retaliation charges and complaints. Our attorneys offer on-site training, investigations into allegations of harassment and discrimination, and advice regarding the types of policies and procedures employers must maintain in order to minimize exposure to harassment, discrimination and retaliation claims.
