In Nevada, state and federal laws protect an employee's right to work in an environment free from discrimination and retaliation. Even though the state is considered a "right to work" state, employers with 15 or more employees may not discriminate against employees based on certain characteristics. Employers also may not retaliate against employees who oppose such discriminatory practices.
If you believe your employer discriminated against you or engaged in retaliatory behavior after you opposed its discrimination, The Gage Law Firm, PLLC, may be able to help. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing individuals whose rights under federal or state laws were violated by their employers. We help individuals who were wrongfully terminated and whose employers failed to accommodate their disabilities as protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The law protects employees from discrimination and retaliation from their employers based on the following characteristics, known as "protected classes":
- National origin
These protections are important because individuals would otherwise have no recourse for unfair treatment by employers, which are often large corporations. Led by Ivy Gage, our founding partner who has been handling employment discrimination and retaliation for more than 25 years, we are zealous advocates for our clients and fight for employees subject to discrimination or retaliation.
