Strong Representation For Employees
Nobody deserves to be discriminated against at work. If your employer refuses to promote you, treats you differently from other employees, refuses to accommodate your disability, or terminates you based upon being in a “protected class” we will fight for you.
Schneider Law PLLC routinely represents people who face a hostile workplace, negative employment actions or termination because of their:
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity/gender expression
- National origin
- Pregnancy or childbirth
- Prior criminal record
- Credit history
- Military status
If you think you were discriminated against at work for any of these reasons, it is critical to talk to a skilled employment law attorney as soon as possible. There are strict time limits that must be observed to bring a claim and Schneider Law PLLC can quickly assess whether you have a legal claim.
We Understand Employee Concerns
We know that people want to go to a job they like, where they are treated fairly, and where their contributions are recognized and appreciated. Employees have the right to be paid fairly, on time, and for every hour worked. Schneider Law PLLC represents employees who:
- Are not timely paid their wages and/or overtime;
- Are retaliated against for making a complaint;
- Are paid differently than like employees because of membership in a protected class.
- Are sexually harassed; or
- Fired because they get pregnant or go on maternity leave.
For some employment claims, there may be a statute that limits how much time you have to file a complaint. Talking to a lawyer about your concern can help you determine what you need to do next.

Competent, Caring and Highly Effective!
Doug is a fantastic lawyer and skillfully helped me navigate an exceptionally trying period of my life. He is candid, honest, and provided me with excellent advice. I cannot say enough about his integrity, work ethic, and genuine care for his clients. Doug allowed me to reclaim my life and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in need of counsel.
Mr. Schneider was compassionate, timely and very responsive throughout my case. From the beginning I felt I was in the capable hands of a true professional who was not only caring and considerate but extremely intelligent.
