Representing Women Who Have Fallen Victim to Discrimination in the Workplace

Understand what you should consider when representing a woman with a workplace discrimination claim.

The topic will begin with a discussion of issues to be considered prior to agreeing to represent the client. Next, the material will address pre-litigation considerations, such as whether to attempt to enter into early settlement negotiations. The topic will then address many of the procedural issues that will arise at the state or federal administrative agencies where a discrimination must first be filed and the factors to consider when weighing whether to keep the dispute at the administrative agency or to instead remove the dispute and proceed in state or federal court. The material will next address issues to consider if the dispute proceeds in state and federal court. And finally, the information will address a variety issues relating to how to value the case.
