Employment Discrimination

Please fill out our online Employment Discrimination Form if you believe you have been unfairly treated at your workplace.

Our firm responds to the unique issues affecting your employment including: 

Severance Agreement Negotiation

Sometimes members of minority groups who are deserving of severance packages are either not offered a package or the package is not representative of your service to the company. J. Graves Associates may be able to convince your employer that it is in their best interest to offer you a fair severance package.

Employment Counseling

Through our counseling services, our attorneys can help you navigate through a specific situation on the job such as to assist you in avoiding a termination or position you for a promotion as well as steer you through a myriad of policies and procedures within your union. However, if all else fails, we will prepare your case for a law suit against your employer.
