Federal and state laws protect employees from being discriminated against, harassed, forced to work in unsafe conditions, or paid unfairly (or not at all). Workers may also be protected from retaliation by employers for speaking up when those laws are broken.
We represent employees who have been discriminated against or treated unfairly by their employers for their age, race, religion, color, gender, gender identity or expression, sex, sexual orientation, ability, marital status, military status, national origin, ancestry, age, and pregnancy. We also work to ensure that workplaces are free from policies and practices that work to negatively affect certain groups of people more than others.
Mountain State Justice also sets out to address systemic injustice in the workplace through class actions and impact litigation, and by assisting cooperative associations to improve and support their communities.
If you were fired, or left your job because of an employer’s actions, you still have a duty to mitigate (make a reasonable effort to find a comparable job). If you don’t make a reasonable effort to find comparable employment, any recovery you may be entitled to may be minimized.
