Civil Rights

Murphy Anderson attorneys represent plaintiffs in impact litigation challenging civil-rights and civil-liberties violations by employers and government actors.

As champions for workers’ rights, including the rights of workers to organize, our attorneys seek to vindicate the rights to free speech and association. Murphy Anderson attorneys represent individuals and unions in section 1983 litigation challenging violations of the First Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment, as well as violations of employees’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the DC Human Rights Act, and other statutorily-protected rights.

Our lawyers fight to defend victims of discrimination and retaliation in the workplace. Murphy Anderson is aggressive in its prosecution of actions on behalf of employees who suffer retaliation for blowing the whistle on their employer’s fraud and other such conduct. Prosecuting retaliation actions on behalf of our whistleblower clients is an integral component of Murphy Anderson’s whistleblower practice.

Murphy Anderson’s civil-rights practice complements the work our lawyers perform in all areas of the firm’s practice to combat workplace abuse and advance the well-being of workers throughout the economy. Our lawyers are experienced and passionate litigators committed to eradicating civil-rights violations both inside and outside the workplace.
