Employees within Washington, D.C., are protected by the District of Columbia's Human Rights Act. This Act states that you cannot be discriminated against on the basis of a number of factors, including race, color, national origin, sex, marital status, family responsibilities, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability or political affiliation.

The D.C. Office of Human Rights (OHR) is the agency in charge of hearing discrimination claims stemming from a violation of D.C. anti-discrimination and FMLA laws. If you feel you are the victim of race, disability or sexual discrimination, do not sit quietly. Protect your legal rights and claims by speaking to a learned employment law advocate today. We will ensure we have listened fully to your story so we can represent your rights and pursue your goals in an economical and efficient fashion.
Our attorneys are experienced in handling a variety of employment discrimination cases within Washington, D.C. We are familiar with the processes involved in bringing a complaint before the OHR. First and foremost, we will work with the OHR in mediation in an attempt to settle your dispute. If mediation fails, we can request the OHR to pursue a full investigation into your discrimination claim. The OHR will then choose to litigate or drop your claim.
We will not allow your claim to go unheard if the OHR decides to stop pursuing your complaint. We can file suit on your behalf in court and represent you in employment litigation, if that is the route you decide to take. No matter what avenue you choose, you can rest assured that we will be with you throughout the process.
