Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act made employment discrimination based on gender illegal under federal law. Despite this law, many women and even some men find career advancement difficult due to entrenched individual and institutional attitudes about gender.
The Law Firm of Michael M. Shultz is a law firm dedicated to helping victims of employment discrimination obtain compensation for the discrimination and retaliation they may have experienced.
Glass Ceilings And Glass Walls
Some talented women encounter a "glass ceiling" when seeking to assume greater responsibilities in an organization. However, some companies also have "glass walls" which prohibit women from moving laterally into positions traditionally filled by men. The law provides remedies for employees who find themselves in these situations. The Law Firm of Michael M. Shultz will energetically seek to obtain compensation for you.
Experienced Sexual Discrimination Attorney
Michael Shultz has practiced employment law for over 20 years. During that time, he has successfully represented numerous clients in cases involving sexual discrimination, age discrimination, sexual harassment and other prohibited employment practices. A former professor of law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, Mike stays current with developments in the field of employment law and has a comprehensive understanding of federal and Kansas employment law.
In particular, the Civil Rights Act of 1991 provides the ability to obtain compensation for emotional distress in addition to back pay, reinstatement and an injunction against further discrimination. It greatly expanded the rights of racial minorities to pursue their claims of discrimination. Under Section 1981, an employee can go straight into court rather than first having to go through the EEOC administrative process.
Mike will use these and every other legal tool at his disposal to obtain results for you. The Law Firm of Michael M. Shultz takes sexual discrimination cases on a contingency basis, meaning you will not owe an attorney fee out of your own pocket. Instead, the firm's fee is paid out of the money we are able to recover from your employer.
