Dedicated Service For Employees Who Have Been Wronged
For many people, their work can be a location where they face unjust and unfair treatment from their employers, being discriminated against because of who they are or facing a hostile work environment. In these cases it can feel like there is nowhere to turn to, but that is where I want to help.
At the Law Office of Robert J. Kor, I have spent my career helping people who have been unjustly treated by their employer. From my two decades of work with Neighborhood Legal Services here in Hartford to my 25 years in private practice, I leverage this experience and knowledge to defend employees who have been harassed, discriminated against, wrongfully terminated or otherwise mistreated. I have always believed that everyone deserved to be treated fairly and to have their rights respected. As the child of Holocaust survivors, I am dedicated to fighting discrimination and ensuring that people’s rights are respected.
My Goal Is To Help Employees Recover From Adverse Employment Actions
Two of the most common types of cases that I represent clients in are discrimination cases and harassment cases. Despite the progress we have made in the law, there are still situations where people experience discrimination on the basis of their legally protected characteristics.
Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it is illegal to discriminate against someone one the basis of their race, religion, color, sex, or national origin. Additional state and federal law also makes it illegal to discriminate against someone because of their age. I have successfully litigated cases such as these, particularly those based on racial discrimination, and have obtained settlements and judgments for my clients.
Another example of the types of cases that I have successfully represented involved the creation of a hostile work environment. This is when an employer creates a work environment that is intimidating, offensive and/or hostile to a reasonable person. In one such case that I participated in, I was able to obtain a settlement for my client after she was repeatedly harassed by her manager. I filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, and we were able to get her employer to settle with her to my client’s satisfaction.
Employment Discrimination Can Be Difficult To Detect, But I Can Help You
Employment cases can be hard because it is often difficult to know why your employer took an adverse action against you, especially when they present a false pretext for their actions. However, when you work with an attorney such as myself, you can rely on my knowledge, skills and experience to help determine whether you have a potential claim against your employer. You can call my office at 860-856-6179 in order to schedule a free, confidential consultation for personal injury and motor vehicle accident cases. Alternatively, if you would like you can also write to me to send me a brief description of your situation.
