Nathaniel David Johnson, Employment Law Litigator, represents victims of employment discrimination.
What is employment discrimination?
Employment discrimination occurs when an employer treats you differently than similarly situated employees outside of your protected class.
That short definition requires a great deal of explanation. The law considers anything done by employees of your employer to have been done by the employer. Discrimination often happens one-on-one, but your employer can still be held liable.
Different treatment that can lead to a claim for discrimination may involve employment matters such as:
- Failure to hire
- Raises and bonuses
- Working conditions
- Hostile work environment
The phrase "similarly situated employee" is a legal term that is not easy to define. It basically means that people who are doing the same kind of work should be held to similar standards and given similar opportunities.
The federal government and the state of Maryland have enacted laws that protect certain groups or categories of persons who have traditionally been the targets of discrimination from unfair employment practices. These categories include people discriminated by:
In short, the law prohibits your employer from cutting your pay or work privileges for an illegal reason.
Let an experienced discrimination lawyer guide you through the process.
Pursuing a job discrimination claim is not easy. In many cases, especially for employees of the federal government, you must first go through an administrative process. There are rules and procedures to follow and deadlines to meet. If you don't know what you're doing, your claim may be dismissed.
You deserve an experienced lawyer to guide you through this legal morass.
Nathaniel David Johnson, Employment Law Litigator, can handle all aspects of your claim. I practice before all administrative bodies including:
- Prince George's County Human Relations Commission

I have experience with these, as well as other administrative agencies. I also practice before the Maryland and federal courts, at both trial and appellate levels. I am efficient and aggressive and I know what I'm doing.
This is an area of the law where experience counts. I have almost 15 years of experience handling employment discrimination claims.
