ARIZONA WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION
LAWYER IN PHOENIX
Discrimination has no place in our society, and that’s especially true when it comes to the workplace. Everyone has the right to earn their living in an environment free of any harassment or discrimination. However, the unfortunate fact remains that workplaces throughout Arizona and the US, are still plagued with workplace discrimination. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and its partner agencies, from 2010 to 2017, over 1 million anti-discrimination cases were reported.
The employment attorneys at Enara Law aggressive stand up for and aggressively represent our clients, against all forms of workplace discrimination.
