Gat Carmi, Law Clerk
Gat Carmi joined Tuckner, Sipser in September 2010, and helps the firm’s attorneys with a variety of employment related litigation matters including employment discrimination and wrongful termination.
Why I do what I do.
As a working mother, I know full well the demands of a demanding job and raising children. I also know full well the women are perfectly capable of balancing careers and family, and doing a great job at both.
Unfortunately at the firm we see women who are not afforded the opportunity to fulfill their potential. Instead, they are subjected to discrimination and sexual harassment. When they oppose discrimination or sexual harassment, often they suffer repercussions, such as hostile workplaces, diminished advancement opportunities, and other retaliation.
I and this firm help one client at a time. Our goal, however, is to end workplace discrimination and harassment in all forms against women. If you have suffered from illegal workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, or other wrongful conduct, please call our firm to learn how our attorneys can help.
As a Law Clerk, I help firm attorneys with employment related litigation matters, including:
