Students, Teachers, and Schools

Discrimination and Harassment in Schools

Discrimination and harassment isn’t limited to the workplace. All too often, it happens in our children’s schools. At Stepter Law Office, we represent students, teachers, and other school district employees who have been the victims of sexual harassment, racial harassment, and discrimination based on race, color, gender, religion, disability, and national origin.

Discrimination and Harassment Lawyer Rayl L. Stepter Fighting for Your Rights Since 1993

If you are a school employee or the parent of a student who has been illegally harassed or discriminated against, please contact Stepter Law Office today. Ohio employment law specialistattorney Rayl L. Stepter, has successfully represented clients in a wide range of school-related conflicts, including:

  • Student-to-student racial harassment
  • Sexual harassment of students and teachers
  • Religious discrimination against teachers
  • Unlawful retaliation against teachers

In cases involving students, we will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the case to see if school administrators and the school district responded properly. We will ask whether the incident was reported and find out if the school’s response was adequate. Were parents notified? Was appropriate disciplinary action taken?

If you have been illegally harassed or discriminated against, we will stand by you and remain a strong advocate for your rights. We don’t abandon our clients. In fact, we represented a teacher whose civil rights and contract claims were appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
