The Claim Process

It is against the law to terminate an employee on a discriminatory basis. Many employers will try to cover up their illegal actions by blaming the company downsizes on economic difficulties or budget issues. Our employment attorneys will thoroughly review statistical information on company layoffs to determine if your employer is engaging in discriminatory practices. If so, we will file a complaint with the courts and pursue justice on your behalf.

Our law firm, Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers, attempts to resolve employment issues as quickly and effectively as possible. We will pursue mediation and negotiations before going to court. However, we always prepare all of our cases for trial, so that we are always ready to fight for your interests in court.
