Employment Law Attorneys With The Experience And Skill Needed To Protect Your Professional Interests
Our firm is experienced in handling all facets of employment law issues, including:
- Discrimination — By law, employers are not allowed to discriminate on the basis of age, race, sex, disability, pregnancy or ethnicity. If an employee is treated differently from other employees or harassed because of one of these factors, there could be grounds for suit. This could include verbal abuse, firing, fewer sales territories and fewer career opportunities.
- Harassment — It is illegal for an employer to single out a worker and mistreat that employee. This can be a complicated issue to prove, and we will provide knowledgeable guidance.
- Sexual harassment — If an employer, manager or co-worker makes unwanted advances toward you at work, there may be grounds for a suit. Sexual harassment suits can also cover issues like inappropriate jokes or conversations, comments on your body or appearance, offers for advancement in exchange for favors, inappropriate touching or any behavior that makes you feel uncomfortable.
- Wage and hour disputes — There are strict federal guidelines for how employees are to be paid for the work they do and how many hours in a week they can work under their employment classification. We provide knowledgeable guidance in these matters, ensuring that your interests are protected.
- Retaliation and wrongful termination — Employees cannot be fired for illegal reasons, including class status or as retaliation for whistleblowing or other reporting. Our attorneys will carefully investigate the incident.
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations — Employees are owed a certain amount of time off for maternity and other medical circumstances. If the employer does not grant this time or backfills the position in their absence, there could be grounds for a suit.
No matter your situation, however, we will take a detailed look at your case, and put together the facts and evidence needed to substantiate your legal position.
