Our firm aggressively represents clients who have experienced some form of discrimination under the following federal acts:
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) : The FMLA requires an employer to grant 12 weeks of unpaid leave to an employee with medical or family issues. This includes the birth or adoption of a child, care for an ill family member and recovery from a personal health condition.
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): Employers are required to make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities. In addition, they cannot fire, refuse to promote, refuse to hire or otherwise discriminate against a person with disabilities if they can perform their required job duties.
- Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA): Under the ADEA, it is unlawful for an employee to fire, refuse to hire, deny training or job benefits, or otherwise retaliate against a person because they are age 40 or older.
In some cases, employees may have additional protection under Hawaii’s discrimination laws. Attorney Brower will examine your situation, explain the law, answer your questions and pursue the most viable option.
