TGH Litigation handles a wide variety of civil matters,

Discrimination in Employment

State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against current or prospective employees on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability, or age. Employment discrimination can take many forms, including termination, demotion, failure to hire, failure to promote, and creating a hostile work environment.

Discrimination in Public Accommodations

Businesses that offer goods, services, shelter, recreation, or entertainment to the general public may not discriminate on the basis or race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability, or familial status. Public accommodations discrimination includes the refusal to serve or sell goods to persons in one ore more protected classes as well as the failure to provide parking, restrooms, or other reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities.  Read more . . .     


Discrimination in Housing

Both Missouri and federal law prohibit landlords and real estate brokers from refusing to rent or sell real property on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability, or familial status. For example, a landlord may not refuse an otherwise qualified tenant from renting an apartment because the prospective tenant is pregnant, has custody of minor children, or lives with extended family.
