State and federal discrimination laws require employers to treat employees equally in all aspects of employment. If an employee believes his or her employer is making unfair hiring, firing, promotion or disciplinary decisions, he or she may be able to pursue a claim for workplace discrimination.
At the law office of Bryan E. Kuhn, Counselor at Law, P.C., in Denver, Colorado, we provide comprehensive representation to employees who have experienced workplace discrimination, as well as employers facing accusations of discrimination.

State and Federal Discrimination Laws
Both state and federal law prohibit discrimination based on the following classifications:
- Age discrimination (ADEA), including ageist jokes/slurs, disqualification during hiring, and making lay off and promotion decisions based on age
- Gender/sex discrimination, including Equal Pay Act cases (wage discrimination), stereotyping, gender role discrimination, and failure to promote based on gender
- Race/national origin discrimination, including disparate treatment and disparate impact, hiring and promotion decisions based on race or ethnicity, and racial/ethnic jokes or slurs
- Disability discrimination (ADA), including discrimination cases involving the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), denied disability benefits, and the failure to make reasonable accommodations
- Pregnancy discrimination (PDA), including laying off, refusing to hire or promote, and other disparate treatment of pregnant women
- Religious discrimination, including making hiring, promotion and disciplinary decisions based on religion (such as discriminating against Muslim workers), and refusing to allow employees to follow normal religious practices
- Military service discrimination (USERRA), including all types of situations such as being prevented from promotion or fighting on the front line
- Unpaid protected leave discrimination (FMLA), including not being granted job protection or being treated differently after returning from leave
- Employment discrimination (CADA)
- Retaliation cases
- Genetic information issues
Discrimination often goes beyond these classifications. For example, alleged discrimination can lead to a hostile work environment. Attorney Bryan E. Kuhn has dealt extensively with employment discrimination cases involving hostile work environments, sexual harassment and other serious issues.
We Simplify An Otherwise Complex Legal Process
Discrimination cases are complex. For example, they may require filing a workplace discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) before proceeding with a court case. In addition, proving that discrimination did or did not occur is difficult — frequently, the only evidence available is witness testimony and/or data that illustrates discrimination trends over time.
