Workplace Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace is a major issue that can have serious consequences for those affected.

Under state and federal anti-discrimination laws, it is illegal to discriminate against someone based on:

  • sex
  • age
  • race
  • religion
  • disability
  • pregnancy
  • national origin
  • citizenship status
  • sexual orientation

Furthermore, employers are prohibited from retaliating against employees who file discrimination-based complaints.

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination claims can be complex and difficult to prove. At our firm, we work diligently to protect the rights of workers who have suffered unjustly at the hands of their employers. We understand that a wrongful termination can have lasting repercussions on an individual’s life and livelihood.

We can investigate the details of a firing, helping to determine its legitimacy. When we see something wrong, we will shine a light on that problem.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a serious form of discrimination, and it can create a detriment to victims, both emotionally and professionally.

Victims of sexual harassment can experience symptoms such as:

  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Physical symptoms such as post-traumatic stress disorder

Overtime Disputes

Unpaid wages can have a devastating effect on workers and their families. Workers are legally entitled to all wages earned due to time worked, whether it is within their regular schedule or overtime.

The law is clear that employers must pay out all unpaid wages, commissions, bonuses, and other benefits promptly.

If you believe you are not being fairly compensated, reach out to our team for help. Alternatively, if a worker is accusing you of withholding pay, and you have clear evidence to the contrary, we can help you, too.

Severance Disputes

Severance agreements are legally binding contracts between employer and employee. They provide compensation for the employee's loss of their job, usually in the form of a monetary package.

Employees accept this in exchange for waiving certain legal rights. For instance, by accepting a severance, you may not be able to file a lawsuit against your employer. Sometimes, an employer forces someone into a severance deal. This is a tricky situation, as the worker accepts and benefits from payment, but their rights are otherwise limited.

Employers, on the other hand, sometimes face retribution despite fair, clearly-worded severance agreements.

Why Should You Choose Us?

Our firm can help both employers and employees handle any of these issues and more. We can help determine the legitimacy of a complaint against employers. For employees, our team is dedicated to protecting your rights and making sure an unscrupulous employer does not take advantage of you.
