Don't Wait Until It's Too Late

File Your Claim As Soon As Possible

Please be aware that the time limit to bring a claim for employment discrimination is shorter than most other legal claims. Except in very rare, limited circumstances when the short mandatory time limits expire, you no longer have the ability to make a claim regarding: sexual discrimination/harassment, racial harassment/discrimination, nationality discrimination/harassment, gender discrimination/harassment, religious discrimination/harassment, pregnancy discrimination/harassment, related retaliation, age discrimination/retaliation, disability discrimination/harassment and related hostile work environment and retaliation. Whistleblower and OSHA related termination claims also have quite short statutory time limits to be commenced. Waiting to have the merits of a case evaluated can be fatal to someone who believes they may have a case. Have your case evaluated by our legal team as early as possible.

We Will Fight to Right the Wrong

At Axelrod & Associates our policy is to offer service that is superior to other firms and assist clients who have not suffered a job loss by providing advice based upon our substantial experience including, but not limited to, methods to document discrimination in the workplace, including keeping a journal of the incidents, phone messages or other recordings, emails, text messages, and witness accounts. We can help to establish and assist in supporting your case, as well as keep track of your unfair treatment when the case does proceed to litigation.

We carefully manage every aspect of your case in order to strengthen and preserve facts and circumstances material to its proof. You deserve to be treated fairly and we are fully committed to assisting you to achieve the pursuit of justice. Fill out our case review form today so that we can begin to look over your case as soon as possible. The sooner that we take action, the better chance you may have at a successful end result.
