Indiana Employment & Labor Law Attorneys

We represent victims of illegal discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace.

The attorneys at Wagner Reese seek justice for violations of employee rights under the state and federal employment laws before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Indiana Civil Rights Commission and the in the Indiana state and federal courts. We fight for the rights of employees in claims involving:

Employment Discrimination

  • Gender/Sex
  • Race
  • Age
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Disability

Sexual Harassment

Retaliation

Wrongful Termination

If you have been the victim of unlawful employment discrimination, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Back Pay – wages or salary & benefits lost due to termination
  • Front Pay – future loss of wages
  • Compensatory Damages – pain and suffering, mental anguish & distress
  • Liquidated Damages – equal to the amount of back pay
  • Punitive Damages – to punish the employer & deter future violations

Strict deadlines may apply to your case. You may be required to report illegal discrimination or harassment to your employer to be entitled to recovery of compensation. In Indiana, it is against the law for your employer to fire you for exercising your rights. Your employer cannot fire or take action against you for complaining against unlawful discrimination or harassment of yourself or others.

Your employer may try to convince you to resign rather than be fired or to sign a release and waiver of all claims against the employer. Before taking action that could result in your loss of ability to recover compensation for violations of your rights, contact us for a free consultation. We offer a free case assessment and will assist you in filing a Complaint with the EEOC and represent you in Indiana state and federal courts.
