tampa bay discrimination lawyersJanuary 16, 2023 – MLK Day - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. strived for progress in racial equality during the modern civil rights movement. He sacrificed his life for global rights but he did not see it that way. His efforts were instrumental in the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This act gave protections from discrimination in employment and led to the creation of the EEOC. The EEOC and the attorney’s at Thompson Legal Center continue to fight against discrimination in the work place. The EEOC investigates the charges of discrimination we file on behalf of our clients who are the victims of employment injustice. On this 60th anniversary of the historic march on Washington, let us all continue to answer Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s call to action to bring about freedom and justice for all people.
