Handling Employment Issues and Disputes
At our firm, we help clients with all types of employment matters, including:
- Discrimination claims: You may have a case against your employer if you have suffered age discrimination, race discrimination, sexual discrimination or discrimination based on a disability, your national origin or your sexual orientation.
- Sexual harassment: Improper propositions and comments can make anyone uncomfortable at work. If you complained and your employer did nothing to stop the harassment, you may be able to bring a claim if you were harassed in the workplace.
- Retaliation: Your employer should take your complaints about discrimination or harassment seriously. If you complained and were fired, demoted or otherwise suffered a form of constructive termination, you may have a claim for retaliation.
- Whistleblower actions: If you blew the whistle on your employer to an outsider such as the media or a government agency, you cannot be fired for that reason alone. We can help you bring a qui tam action if you were fired for whistleblowing.
- Wrongful termination: While most jobs are at-will, meaning you can be fired without cause, an employer cannot fire you for an illegal reason such as discrimination or retaliation. If you are working under contract, your employer also cannot fire you in violation of your agreement.
- Wage and hour law: If you were denied overtime or meal breaks, you may have a claim under state or federal wage and hour laws.
Civil Rights Disputes
In addition to protecting the rights of employees, we also handle cases of police brutality, including wrongful arrest. If your civil rights have been violated, we will help you seek justice. The time frame to file these types of cases is short, so it is important to contact an attorney right away.
