Employment Discrimination

You've worked hard to advance in your career and expect your evaluation to be fair and honesty. Sometimes it's hard to admit that workplace bias may be hindering your progress. Workplace discrimination is against the law. If you believe you have been the victim of discrimination contact the Law Office of Quentin Driskell


The Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII, is the cornerstone of anti-discrimination law in the workplace, and may cover your situation. It prohibits discrimination in employment because of race, color, sex, national origin and religion. It applies to federal, state, local governments, private employers, labor organizations, and employment agencies.


Title VII makes it unlawful for an employee to to refuse to hire, discharge, or otherwise discriminate against any individual with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, and privileges of employment. Even where there is no intent to discriminate an employment practice will violate Title VII if it has an unjustified adverse impact on members of a protected class.


Hostile Work Environment

A hostile work environment can be established by showing that an individual who is a member of a protected class, suffered intentional discrimination and the discrimination was pervasive and regular. The discriminatory acts must be such that any reasonable person in the same position would be offended.


Unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors may constitute sexual harassment when such conduct is made either explicitly, or implicitly a term or condition of employment.

Americans With Disabilities Act

A disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of an individual; or having a record of impairment; or being regarded as having such impairment. The ADA prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of an actual or perceived disability, or the record of having a disability


Age Discrimination in Employment Act

The ADEA prohibits discrimination against individuals who are at least 40 years old, and applies to private employers, the federal government, employment agencies, and labor organizations. It prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, job classification, transfer, promotion, compensation, termination, and other terms and conditions of employment.


Equal Pay Act

The Equal Pay Act makes it illegal to pay female workers less than male for equal work. Equal work means jobs that require certain skills, effort, and responsibility and are performed under similar working conditions.

Criminal Defense/Criminal Appeals/Post Conviction Relief

The first thing you should do if you, or someone you love has been arrested is make an effort to obtain his or her release. An accused stands a better chance of acquittal at trial if they are released and available to assist their attorney. The next thing you should do is contact a lawyer.


If you have been arrested and charged with a crime do not try to reason with the police everything you say will be used against you. A criminal arrest will bring all of the resources of the government to bear against you. When you need an experienced defense attorney contact the Law Office of Quentin D. Driskell.
