Sometimes these “Jekyll and Hyde” switches occur because a superior learned something about a subordinate that then caused him or her to have a negative bias, like the employee was of a certain religion or sexual orientation. Sometimes the reason is more obvious, like a bias against people of a certain race, being male or female, a woman becoming pregnant or people with disabilities.

Employer Defense: Alternative Dispute Resolution
Every employment law claim is different. The approach that works well in one case may not be the right strategy for your company. Our goal is always to get the best long-term outcome for clients. In some cases, that means building an aggressive defense. In other cases, that means looking for a resolution in the settlement.

We are prepared to help you resolve any of the issues listed above through mediation or arbitration.
