Federal and state laws and regulations prohibit employment discrimination based on characteristics like gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, or ethnic background. Such laws also prohibit retaliation against an employee who raises a complaint. Both formal and informal discrimination complaints require a careful response. KMK advises businesses on discrimination matters, and represents companies faced with discrimination litigation or administrative proceedings. Oftentimes KMK is hired by the employer’s insurer to defend the insured company.
