Race, Age & Disability
No one should ever be treated unfairly in their workplace, but of course, unfair treatment does occur much more often than we would imagine. If you believe that your employer is treating you differently because of your race, your age, or a disability, we can help you get the justice you deserve. You may even be able to claim monetary damages.
Employee rights matter a great deal to us here at Leeman Law. We know how important it is for individuals to be able to use the services of a knowledgeable and experienced Indiana discrimination attorney. In many cases, we’ve been able to assist our clients in settling with their employer out of court, avoiding litigation altogether.
Types of Discrimination Claims
It is illegal for a company to discriminate against you based upon your race, your age, or qualifying disability. We can help you get justice. Call today.
There are many different laws which apply to employers with regards to discrimination. Some of the types of discrimination claims we handle include:
- Age: The Age Discrimination in Employment Act protects the rights of employees between the ages of 40 and 65. We have successfully invoked this law to help our clients receive justice.
- Disability: Individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Whether you were denied employment outright, terminated unfairly, or your employer failed to make reasonable accommodations for your disability, Leeman Law can help you.
- Race: The Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act, and specific Indiana state laws protect individuals from being discriminated against based on their race. We can use these laws and the precedents set by other cases in the past to hold your employer accountable for their treatment of you.
Of course, there are other protected classes as well, which are served and protected by other legislation. We handle all types of discrimination cases. If you’ve been discriminated against based on your gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, or religion, we can help.

One reason that employees often fail to hold their employers accountable for discrimination is that they fear that their employer will retaliate against them. That’s another reason it’s good to have an experienced Logansport discrimination lawyer. If you believe that your employer is retaliating against you because you are holding them accountable for discrimination, this will severely damage their case. Contact your lawyer immediately if you have any reason to believe that retaliation of any sort is taking place.
We’ll work with you to meet your goals and hold the discriminatory parties responsible. Contact us for a consultation to find out what we can do to help you protect your rights
