Providing Hawaii with aggressive employment discrimination defense

While an employer has a right to exercise individual discretion in hiring and firing decisions, an employer may not make an ultimate hiring decision based on certain personal characteristics, including:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Disability

By applying extensive knowledge of state and federal employment laws along with our aggressive litigation tactics, we are uniquely qualified to rectify the discrimination against you. When you have unfairly lost your job or an opportunity to be hired for a job, an experienced Honolulu employment attorney can level the employment playing field.

Successfully representing employees for more over 20 years

Unlawful employment discrimination cases can be challenging because employers rarely admit to using an illegal basis for their employment decisions. Additionally, the failure to file your claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within the statutory filing period may cost you the right to have your case heard. As a proficient Hawaii discrimination lawyer, Attorney Luiz is prepared to take the necessary steps to prove the discrimination. This may include reviewing the company’s past hiring/firing practices, interviewing key witnesses, and researching the employer’s memos, internal documents and policies that provide critical evidence of the employer’s intent. He leaves no stone unturned in discovering the evidence to support your case.

Many people believe that employment discrimination occurs only in hiring and firing decisions, but it can occur in any aspect of employment, including:

  • Hiring and firing
  • Compensation
  • Classification of employees
  • Transfer, promotion or layoff
  • Recruitment
  • Testing or training programs
  • Use of company facilities
  • Fringe benefits
  • Pay, retirement plans and disability leave

If you believe your employer acted unlawfully and discriminated against you, Attorney Luiz is equipped to effectively assist you in recovering the compensation you deserve.
