Here are just some of the employment cases we handle:
Unpaid Wages or Overtime
You have a right to be paid for every hour you work and earn at least the federal minimum wage. Failing to pay an employee or denying overtime pay violates this right. We can help you recover the unpaid wages your employer owes you.
It is illegal for employers to discriminate against workers or job applicants based on race, gender, religion, disability, national origin, age, or pregnancy. If an employer discriminated against you, call us today to hold the employer accountable.
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Whether an employer is directly responsible for the harassment or allows it, you may have a case and could be entitled to damages.
If an employee files a workers’ compensation claim, files a complaint, or becomes a whistleblower on illegal activities, federal law prevents the employer from retaliating. Employers who violate this law could be liable for damages.
Family and Medical Leave Act
The Family and Medical Leave Act allows employees time off for the birth of a child, serious health conditions, and other circumstances. Employers who discipline employees for missing work in these situations or fail to recognize health issues may owe damages to wronged employees.
