Practice Areas: Employment
We handle many types of employment matters including wrongful termination and demotion, (sexual and workplace) harassment, retaliation, discrimination, hostile work environment, wage/hour claims and environment cases. Contact us if your rights have been violated because you made a bona fide complaint concerning unsafe working conditions, you reported that the law has been violated or you were the victim of retaliation, discrimination and/or harassment because you warned the employer that placement of an unsafe product may cause harm to the consuming public may entitle you to bring an action against the employer. Prohibited retaliation includes discharge, threatened discharge, demotion, suspension or refusing to renew an employment contract. Protecting your rights or even negotiating employment contracts requires experience and solid legal skills. Our office excels in representing clients. If litigation is required, we are prepared to protect clients’ rights, in court, mediation or in arbitration, and have a demonstrated track record.
Employees: You want an attorney who knows both sides in an employment dispute. If you have been unlawfully fired or demoted, you have rights. For example, if you were fired, demoted or simply discriminated based upon being a minority race, because you are 40 years of age or older, due to a mental distress or physical disability (including pregnancy), due to your religion or national origin by your employer, you have rights. Whether you voluntarily left or were terminated and you were not given your final paycheck including all vacation pay earned within 72 hours you are entitled to waiting time penalties.
What if you were the victim of a retaliatory termination because your working conditions were dangerous, the products produced were dangerous or defective or your employer failed to pay overtime wages and you complained about any of these or other similar matters? You have rights. You may be entitled not only to unpaid wages, including commissions, unused vacation pay, perhaps overtime pay and emotional distress damages and perhaps punitive damages. You may have a right to recover your legal costs and attorney fee. Call for a courtesy consultation to discuss your concerns rather than just being a victim.
