Types Of Employment Issues We Confidently Handle

Our firm works to protect the rights of employees in a wide range of employment law matters, including:

  • Discrimination: When an employee is discriminated against, he or she has a right to take action. There are numerous protected classifications, including age, race, sex, gender, national origin and pregnancy, upon which it is illegal to judge an employee.
  • Harassment: Whether the harassment being experienced is sexual harassment or mistreatment due to sex, gender or other characteristics, workplace harassment is illegal and against nearly all company policies, as well as labor laws.
  • Wrongful termination: Employees who are terminated may have grounds upon which to file a wrongful termination claim if they can prove malicious or harmful intentions behind their being let go from the company.
  • Retaliation: When a supervisor or employer retaliates due to the reporting of discrimination, harassment or other issues that were raised by the employee, an additional illegal act is being committed by the employer.
  • Wage and hour disputes: Employers will often dispute overtime worked, the amount of overtime pay, will fail to issue paychecks, fail to provide meal and rest breaks, and other issues related to hours worked.
