Although employment in Georgia is at-will — meaning that an employee can be discharged for no reason — it is quite a different story if that employee claims discrimination or harassment as the cause of termination. Allegations of violations of the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws are not only contentious, but can bring with them financial losses, a tarnished reputation, and the risk of lowered employee morale. Because almost all of our firm’s clients are businesses, they often need guidance and assistance in responding to employment related claims and problems. We work closely with Human Resource Directors and professionals to formulate sound strategies and responses to allegations of discrimination and other employment related claims.
The employment defense attorneys at the Atlanta law firm of Fowler, Hein, Cheatwood & Williams, P.A. provide legal advocacy in a number of areas, including:
Our legal team performs evaluations of current business practices to make sure that every business decision falls in line with the federal EEO guidelines — and keeps issues from becoming lawsuits.
How your business manages allegations of EEO violations is imperative to its future potential. Maintaining control of your company’s image during this time is a very formidable challenge and one truly benefited by sound legal management. What's more, it means maintaining control of your company's image throughout the process — from the outside media to internal communications.
