Raleigh Employment Discrimination Attorneys
You Have the Right to Live & Work Free from Discrimination
At Edwards Kirby, we understand every individual has the right to live and work free from discrimination. Civil rights laws protect employees from being subjected to discrimination in the workplace because of their race, age, disability, taking of protected leave for medical reasons or to care for a family member under the Family and Medical Leave Act, national origin, gender, family responsibilities, sexual orientation, and religion. Unfortunately, prejudice and discrimination are still all too prevalent in America, and the victims experience deep, sincere, and undeserved pain as a result.
If you have been the victim of unlawful discrimination, our lawyers can help. We are passionate about protecting our clients’ civil rights and will use our considerable experience and resources to hold at-fault employers accountable for discrimination and other illegal practices.

Examples of Discrimination & Discriminatory Treatment
When it comes to employment, discrimination can occur in many different ways. Some common examples include discriminatory treatment:
- Before employment begins, such as discriminatory hiring practices.
- During employment, such as discrimination in compensation, promotions, or other terms and conditions of employment.
- Resulting from the taking of protected leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act or comparable state and local laws.
- Leading to the end of employment, such as constructive discharge or wrongful termination.
Our Raleigh employment discrimination attorneys take on cases of all kinds involving unfair treatment in hiring, promoting, firing, or compensating employees. We also represent employees who face retaliation by their employers after complaining about discrimination and harassment at work.
