Attentive EEOC/Employment Discrimination Attorneys in Little Rock Strongly Representing Your Business
Protecting you against allegations of EEOC violations
When hiring, promoting or terminating workers, your company is required to comply with the regulations of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Individuals who believe that your company did not do so may file a complaint against you, and you need an experienced Little Rock EEOC lawyer to thoroughly investigate the claim and protect your business. Serving our community since 1987 and with over 70 years of combined legal experience, the team at James & Carter PLC empowers you to rebut claims or reach fair settlements out of court.
Our Little Rock discrimination lawyers fight hard on your behalf, working as a team to resolve discrimination-related disputes efficiently. We are focused on your success, not ours, which is why we offer competitive rates.
What is the EEOC?
The EEOC enforces all federal equal opportunity employment laws, which make it a crime to discriminate against job candidates or employees due to their race, national origin, gender, age, religion or disability. These federal laws generally apply to organizations that employ 15 or more people, including employment agencies and labor unions. The Arkansas Civil Rights Act applies to employers with 9 or more employees. They are also far-reaching, covering the areas of hiring, firing, harassment, wages, training, promotions and benefits.
Little Rock EEOC attorneys ensure you comply with regulations
A good way to begin fighting EEOC discrimination charges is by explaining your current anti-discrimination policies and procedures. The objective is to demonstrate how seriously your company takes the issue of discrimination, if possible by quoting any relevant provisions of your employee handbook. You should also respond to any discrimination claim with your company’s version of the story. For example, if a fired employee claims he or she was terminated due to age or a disability, you should clearly articulate the exact reasons for the termination.
Issues related to EEOC discrimination allegations can be very difficult for a business owner to deal with, but fortunately the attentive lawyers at James & Carter PLC are with you every step of the way. We work to present evidence — including the current demographics of your workforce and your history of fair hiring practices — that shows your business does not discriminate. As your employment attorneys, we do what it takes to protect your company and its reputation.
