• Fighting IL & MO Employment Discrimination

    When you’re at your job, you have a legal right to feel comfortable and non-threatened by those around you. However, many employers and places of business discriminate against certain employees based on any number of factors,just because that employee is different in some way. At Brunton Law Office, we pursue justice and financial compensation for those that have been treated unfairly by an individual or by the workplace as a whole. If you’re being discriminated against at your job, don’t wait – call Brunton Law for an evaluation of your claim.

  • What is Employment Discrimination?

    Employment discrimination laws exist to protect our workplaces from racism, bigotry, misogyny and other forms of discrimination. The most common examples of employment discrimination have to do with wage gaps and maternity leave. However, employment discrimination takes place in many forms at all different levels of the American workplace. Furthermore, employment discrimination happens when laws are broken that are enforced by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). Click here for more about laws enforced by the EEOC.
