Whether you have been terminated, disciplined, denied promotions or accommodations for disability or religion, or need disability retirement, protection from retaliation for blowing the whistle in your federal employment, or even just need review of a severance agreement, I am here for you. In every case, I try to give an honest evaluation and my best efforts. I have provided more information about my work below.
At Day Law Practice, LLC we provide the following practice areas in Maryland and District of Columbia.
Federal law forbids your employer to discriminate against you on the basis of your race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or religion. It also forbids your employer from retaliating against you for bringing a claim of discrimination or otherwise opposing discrimination.
The creation of a hostile work environment based on sex (or some other protected characteristic), results when the atmosphere on the job is permeated with discriminatory insult and ridicule that is sufficiently “severe or pervasive” to alter the conditions of the employee’s environment.
Employees in Maryland and the District of Columbia who fall ill or have family members who are afflicted with serious illnesses are guaranteed a certain amount of time off without fear of losing their jobs under both federal and state laws.
Blowing the Whistle
While an employee subjected to retaliation for making a protected disclosure should certainly investigate his legal remedies to the fullest, an employee contemplating making a disclosure should bear in mind that the law is at best an imperfect protection for those who have provoked the federal government.
“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. . . . . For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always meant “Never.” We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that ‘justice too long delayed is justice denied.'”
