Philosophy

Regrettably, some employers–including government agencies–have not yet learned that they may not discriminate against employees based upon race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability/handicap, or age. However, it is also true that many persons cannot accept responsibility for their own conduct, or cannot believe that their employer actually had a legitimate reason for an employment-related decision. This is completely understandable given the personal nature of employment relations: None of us can be expected to view such relations in a dispassionate and fully rational manner, unless we are possessed with the insight of a sage and the self-control of a saint.

Accordingly, as with police misconduct and prisoner rights cases, Dr. Belcher strongly recommends that persons who feel that they may have a claim under one or more of the federal anti-discrimination statutes discussed above, or their state-law equivalents, first obtain an objective and honest opinion from experienced counsel before tying up valuable time and emotional energy pursuing a claim before the EEOC or a counterpart state agency. If Dr. Belcher concludes from his own investigation that a person’s claims are worth pursuing, he will represent a claimant in mediation with the employer; provide vigorous representation before the EEOC or its state counterpart; and, if necessary, file and prosecute a lawsuit in the appropriate jurisdiction.
