While the target of employment discrimination knows when it is occurring, it takes a skilled litigator to find and present objective proof that it has occurred. Employees can be treated unfairly based on a number of characteristics. Employers can discriminate on age, disability, race, sexual orientation, national origin, pregnancy, religion and gender. Creating a "glass ceiling" to stall out promotions at a middle level is also a form of discrimination. Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C. is a firm with the resources and experience to get results that meet your goals.

Employment discrimination can take many forms. Whether you were fired from your job without just cause or you were denied a promotion because of pregnancy or race, you have the right to challenge the actions of your employer. Our firm protects the rights of employees who suffer discrimination in the private sector. In addition to assisting victims of civil rights violations, we are also experienced in cases of retaliation or discrimination for whistleblowing after a report of sexual harassment or wrongdoing. We can effectively file a complaint with your local office of human rights.
We will work to resolve your dispute quickly and discreetly and will settle where possible — but we are prepared to take any case to court. Our aggressive litigation team is dedicated to protecting your legal rights.
Federal employees are afforded numerous protections against discrimination that are not available to employees in the private sector. If you have received a proposed reprimand suspension, removal or other form of discipline we will work to challenge the allegations against you and identify any illegal discrimination. We will take the time to prepare a response, using evidence to reverse the decision of the government entity. In the event that a decision is entered against you, we are prepared to appeal your case. Our primary goal is to arrive at a fair and just settlement of the issue, usually by preventing disciplinary action, suspension or removal, but sometimes also working to recover your lost wages.

"Alan Lescht is an excellent attorney. He is not only reasonable in cost, but personable, and knows the law for employees within the Federal Government, and those with disabilities! At the time of my case, I was in Iowa, and Alan was in DC. To this day, I have never met Alan in person, but I knew I could trust him, after talking with him on the phone. Alan saved me from getting fired from my Federal job. He not only saved my career, but saved me from going bankrupt, losing my house, etc. I am still employed within the Federal Government, and know where to turn to if necessary! Thank you Alan!"
