The Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm Obtains Confidential Settlement in EEOC Claim

February 5, 2014 by

Dothan Alabama Civil Plaintiff Lawyers David Hogg and Aaron Gartlan of the Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm recently entered a confidential settlement of a claim at mediation that had been filed with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of a hard working Alabama woman.

 

The EEOC is the federal agency responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. The laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits. These laws can be complicated and contain many procedural requirements in order to successfully maintain a claim or be able to file a lawsuit. Therefore, it is crucial to seek the advice of a lawyer immediately, if you have been the victim of this type of discrimination.

 

The Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm takes pride in assisting hard working families navigate through the legal process.
