Harassment, Discrimination & Wrongful Termination

Mahoney Law Group understands that employment disputes can have an overwhelming, even devastating impact on people’s personal and professional lives. When these disputes arise, we aim to build bridges between employees and employers.


Harassment is a widespread issue in today’s workplace, where people of all genders end up susceptible to enduring these sorts of unsafe working conditions. Many victims of harassment feel that they cannot come forward for fear of losing their job or upsetting the workplace balance, but no one should have to endure harassment anywhere, especially in their place of work, and there are laws in place to protect you and your job from these types of harassment.

  • Physical Harassment
  • Verbal Harassment
  • Coercion, Threats, and Bribery

If you are the victim of workplace harassment, let Mahoney Law Group help you fight back. You may even be entitled to compensation for the trouble you’ve endured. Any type of harassment is unacceptable and all of those guilty of it should be held accountable for their actions and prevented from repeating this behavior with you and other employees.


Over the last half century, a number of laws have been enacted to ensure that all members of society are treated equally in the workplace. Under diverse local, state, and federal laws, most employers are barred from discriminating against employees on the basis of characteristics such as race, age, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity, religion, and pregnancy in every aspect of employment, including:

  • Hiring and termination
  • Compensation and salary
  • Classification of employees
  • Demotion, promotion, layoff, or recall
  • Recruitment and testing
  • Use of company facilities
  • Training and apprenticeship programs
  • Fringe benefits
  • Pay, retirement plans, and disability leave.

Mahoney Law Group has extensive experience representing employees with a variety of discrimination claims. Contact our experienced legal professionals for aggressive representation in discrimination claims.

Wrongful Termination

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Ethnic identity/heritage
  • Nationality
  • Citizenship status
  • Arrest record/criminal convictions
  • Obesity/medical history/use of tobacco

  • Political activity outside of work
