Employment Law

A dispute that threatens your livelihood can be particularly nerve-racking. If your employer has mistreated you, for example, you may be outraged but also afraid to speak out due to concerns about the security of your job and your future. However, you may be comforted to know that it is illegal for an employer to terminate you in retaliation for reporting illegal activity. As an employee, you have rights and the liberty to stand up for them. Allow us to discuss a few of the most common types of employment disputes we have encountered, as well as how we can help you resolve them.

Wage Disputes

When an employer neglects to compensate you for overtime, fails to pay you minimum wage, or otherwise withholds your income, you likely have grounds for a wage dispute. Such violations are not always obvious, either. Employers often use underhanded tactics, such as paying you a flat rate for a project that turns out to be far less than minimum wage when you divide it by the total number of hours worked. Likewise, employers may deprive you of daily lunch or rest breaks, again eating away at the amount you ultimately earn per hour. These kinds of practices are not only morally wrong — they are against the law, and we will help you put a stop to them.

Harassment

You deserve to work in an atmosphere that is free from hostility and discrimination, and if anyone bars you from having this privilege, you have the right to take legal action. Though workplace harassment is often sexual in nature, it can also be directed at a person’s race, religion, age, or disability.  It can be as overt as unwanted touching or as discreet an offensive comment thinly veiled as a joke. Nonetheless, if you have asked for the behavior to be stopped without success, it may be time for an attorney to step in.

Wrongful Termination

Losing your job can be devastating under any circumstance, but it is especially jarring when you were let go due to discrimination or retaliation. So, if you believe you were fired because of gender, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or your courage to speak up about unlawful employment practices, we advise you to seek immediate legal counsel. An experienced lawyer can help you seek justice.
