Civil Rights & Employment Discrimination

One of the best things about living in the United States is the civil rights that protect us as citizens. Not all countries afford these kinds of civil rights to their citizens, so we are fortunate in this country to have such opportunities and protections. With that said, even in a country founded on freedom, our civil rights are not always protected as they should be. If you feel that your rights have been infringed on in some way, contact Rinaldi & Poveromo today. Our experienced team would be proud to stand up for you and protect this vital piece of what it is to be an American.


Standing Up for Civil Rights

Sadly, discrimination comes in many forms in the modern world. An individual or group of people may be discriminated against because of their race, sexual orientation, religion, or for many other reasons. None of those reasons are valid, of course, and we take great pride in representing all of our clients equally.

When filing a civil rights case, it will be essential to demonstrate exactly how you were discriminated against and what kinds of harm resulted from that discrimination. Generally speaking, it’s best to get started with this kind of case right away while your memory is fresh, and it is easier to track down witnesses who can corroborate your story. As time passes, those things become more difficult, and you may struggle to present a compelling case.

If you feel hesitant about filing this kind of case, remember that standing up for civil rights is about more than just yourself. You aren’t selfish by filing a claim that argues in favor of equality and justice. In fact, most would agree that you are doing your duty as an American citizen to stand up for what is right. Winning a civil rights case would not only be a triumph of justice for you personally, but it would also help to set a precedent for future cases of a similar nature.


Combatting Employment Discrimination

Facing discrimination on the job is particularly unsettling. For one thing, this is where you make your living, and you feel that you should be entitled to work hard to earn a salary without having issues of discrimination getting in the way. You may also feel betrayed by people you thought were trusted co-workers and employers – and maybe even friends.

Nevertheless, it’s important to pursue legal action if you feel that you have suffered harm due to employment discrimination. Maybe you were passed over for promotion not because of your qualifications but because of your race or gender. Or perhaps you aren’t being paid as much as another person in the same position. There are endless possibilities here, and you deserve to stand up for your rights and be represented to the fullest extent of the law. Winning this type of case could compensate you for what was lost when you were mistreated on the job. As an experienced discrimination lawyer, Rinaldi & Poveromo is ready to fight for you.
