At the Law Office of Richard A. Mulhearn, P.C., we have over 25 years of experience handling employment discrimination cases for clients in Worcester and throughout the state of Massachusetts. Attorney Richard Mulhearn is a dedicated advocate who aggressively fights for his clients' rights.

Employment discrimination can happen on the basis of a range of protected classifications and characteristics, such as:

  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • Sex/gender discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • National origin/color/race discrimination
  • Handicap or disability discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination

We handle all cases involving employment discrimination, including those above. Our firm can review your situation and determine the possibility that a successful or beneficial resolution can be reached in your case.

What Is Employment Discrimination?

Employment discrimination involves adverse employment actions that are specifically due to an individual's membership in a protected class, such as an individual's age, gender, pregnancy status, race, religion or sexual orientation. Examples of employment discrimination may include:

  • An older employee is given less favorable work assignments due to his or her age
  • An employee is surprisingly passed over for a promotion after filing a sexual harassment claim, while a less-qualified individual receives the promotion
  • A woman is suddenly terminated after returning from maternity leave
  • Two employees of opposite sex in the same occupation receive unequal pay even though they have similar qualifications, experience and responsibilities

Reporting Workplace Discrimination

Many employees are too afraid to report workplace and employment discrimination to their superiors for fear of retaliation and wrongful termination. It is extremely important that any discrimination be reported. If you are retaliated against or terminated and you suspect that it is because you reported the discrimination or sexual harassment, we can assist you in filing a claim of retaliation to recover the damages you suffered due to your employer's illegal actions.
