You Have Rights and Options

When people face discrimination in the workplace, they are often reluctant to fight back because they worry about the repercussions of doing so. You may wonder about the following:

  • What can I do to stop the harassment?
  • What if I get fired?
  • What if I get a bad reference?
  • What if I can't get another job?
  • Where do I go from here?

It is important to remember that being discriminated against on the ground of your sex, race, national origin, religion, age or disability is unlawful . It is important to contact an attorney so that you understand your rights and options under the law and so that you have a dedicated advocate fighting on your side. At The Law Office of Geralyn F. Noonan , we understand that you may feel intimidated, even powerless. Attorney Geralyn Noonan has been helping clients for over 15 years protect their rights in the workplace, obtain damages and ensure that their employers take steps to remedy the situation.

As a former investigator and acting director of the Lee County, Florida, Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (LCOEO), Geralyn Noonan brings to every client valuable insight, built on years of experience. She knows how the system works, and how the parties -- employee, employer and EEOC -- approach each case. If you have been the victim of employment discrimination, including, but not limited to, sexual harassment, contact us at 239-694-7070 to schedule an appointment, and let our experience work for you.

Time is of the Essence

Because local and federal laws afford you a little less than a year to report employment discrimination claims, and you have one year to report the claim under federal law in most circumstances, it is important that you act now to protect your rights.

You Don't Have to Face This Alone

Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms, including:

  • Failure to hire
  • Failure to promote, or not being allowed the same opportunities for advancement that others are offered
  • Wrongful termination
  • Demotion due to age, and being asked by your employer when you plan to retire
  • Discriminatory work schedules
  • Hostile work environment (HWE), or a situation that interferes with your job performance and mental and/or physical health
  • Sexual harassment
  • Outright racism
  • Religious mistreatment

In addition to creating, or failing to remedy, these discriminatory practices, it is likewise unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee for asserting their rights under the law.
