Good employers take care of their employees and have proper procedures in place to hear and investigate complaints from employees. When an employee reports a case of discrimination involving race, disability, age, or gender, a company should take every step possible to appropriately handle the situation. Unfortunately, many companies do not properly investigate complaints. In some cases, employers wrongfully terminate employees who have come forward with genuine concerns. If you are experiencing discrimination in your workplace, it is essential that you know your rights.

Unfortunately, Kansas City is no stranger to issues surrounding employment discrimination. At Hollis Law Firm, we advocate for employees suffering from various kinds of discrimination, including:
- Sex and gender discrimination: If you have been wrongfully fired or denied a promotion because of your sex, gender or sexual orientation, you may be able to file a claim against your employer.
- Racial discrimination: If you are experiencing harassment or discrimination at your workplace because of your race, you may be able to seek compensation from your employer.
- Pregnancy discrimination: Federal laws are in place to protect pregnant persons in the workplace. If you are wrongfully terminated due to pregnancy, you can take legal action against your employer.
- Disability discrimination: Companies are not allowed to discriminate against existing or potential employees who have disabilities. In fact, companies are required to provide reasonable accommodations for employees or candidates with disabilities.
- Sexual harassment: If you have been subjected to sexual harassment at your workplace, you deserve to hold your employer accountable and seek justice.
These are just a few of the areas in which our employment discrimination lawyer practices. If you suspect that you are experiencing discrimination of any kind in your workplace, it’s essential to seek legal counsel.
Kansas and Missouri are both at-will employment states, meaning an employer can generally fire you for any reason, so long as it is not an illegal reason. For example, your employer cannot fire you on any discriminatory grounds, such as race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or age. Additionally, an employer cannot fire you for speaking out against discrimination in the workplace. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, it’s important to seek legal counsel from a skilled employment lawyer.
Wage and Hours Disputes
In accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), most employers are required to follow federal rules surrounding wage standards, overtime, hours, and other elements of employment. If you believe your employer has violated any federal or state labor laws regarding your hours or wages, it’s essential to seek legal counsel. Your employer will likely secure top-notch legal counsel, which is why it’s essential to have a trusted attorney on your side protecting your rights. Some of the wage and hours disputes we represent at the Hollis Law Firm include:
- Overtime and off-the-clock work and wage disputes
- Failure to pay minimum wage
- Unpaid wage disputes
- Failure to properly classify employees (exempt vs. non-exempt)
Unfortunately, some workplaces are plagued with issues of sexual harassment. Sexual harassment in the workplace can take on a variety of forms. Whether you have been the subject of insulting, offensive language or unwanted sexual advances from coworkers or supervisors, it’s essential to take action. Sexual harassment in the workplace is illegal, and it’s important to secure legal help from a trusted attorney.
Retaliation in the Workplace
When employees complain to their human resources department about an instance of discrimination, they sometimes face retaliation from their employer. Rather than investigating the situation, some companies choose to turn on their employees. Although retaliation of this kind is illegal, some companies will wrongfully terminate employees who have made genuine complaints. If you have experienced retaliation after complaining to your workplace about discrimination, do not hesitate to seek legal representation. Many companies have the resources to secure legal counsel of their own; therefore, you need your own lawyer to ensure an equal playing field.

The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions!
Jason’s patience with all my questions throughout this rather long process was very reassuring. My many calls were always answered promptly and professionally by the Hollis staff. If Jason was not immediately available, he would always return my calls the same day or at the latest, the next day. The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions, but never guessed at answering. If they could not answer a question they quickly passed it on to Jason. Jason did a very good job of explaining the legal issues with my case, how the process worked, and what all my options were when applicable. Jason and everyone I spoke with at Hollis were always professional and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I felt very comfortable working with Jason and the Hollis Law Firm staff. I would be totally at ease recommending Jason and the Hollis Law Firm to anyone.
