Under Federal law, specifically Title VII and Title IX, it is unlawful to discriminate against a person based on their age, race, gender, or religious beliefs.


Over the last few years, the number of Title VII claims has substantially increased. Typically, the EEOC oversees and investigates such claims.


The employment attorneys at Anderson Julian & Hull have assisted numerous clients in addressing the investigations by the EEOC.


More importantly, for those claims that move into federal court, the attorney’s at Anderson, Julian and Hull are well-versed in such litigation, including the appropriate defenses which may apply to Title VII and Title IX claims and are entirely capable of presenting the key issues and factual evidence to the Judge and the Jury.
