To start, you only have a limited amount of time to file your claim. The failure to take quick action could result in your case being dismissed. In addition, our legal team will take immediate action to start gathering evidence to build the strongest legal claim on your behalf. In general, plaintiffs must prove the following four things in discrimination claims:

  • Membership in a protected class;
  • Qualification for the underlying position;
  • The suffering of an adverse employment action; and
  • A connection between the adverse employment action and a discriminatory motive.  

As these cases can sometimes be challenging to prove, you need a top-rated Fort Lauderdale employment lawyer on your team. If you suffered any type of adverse employment action (not hired for a job, termination, laid off, denied a promotion, denied a salary increase, missed out on career opportunities, etc) and you believe that discriminatory animus affected your employer’s decision, you should speak to a lawyer.
