Employment Law / Civil Rights

The Employment Law/Civil Rights attorneys at Bolhouse, Baar & Hofstee fight for the rights of individuals who have been unfairly treated or fired by their employers. We have won some of the largest employment law cases in West Michigan history, including a $3.4 million judgment on behalf of 8 Grand Rapids police officers in a discrimination suit and an $843,000 judgment for a 911 operator in a whistleblowers protection suit.

Federal and state laws protect most workers from facing discrimination on the job. These laws regulate all aspects of work, including hiring and firing, job duties, wages, benefits, promotions and reviews.

If you have been unfairly treated or fired by your employer, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. This compensation may include payment for pain and suffering, lost wages and other economic losses resulting from your termination or unfair treatment.
