Our Practice Areas
Labor and employment laws are dynamic. Our attorneys can help you to find the best solutions to the problems in your specific workplace.
Discrimination & Sexual Harrassment
Most of the time, you have a year or less to report your claims, so it is important that you find out about your rights as soon as possible.
In discrimination cases, most of our efforts are spent representing employees, but we also help employers who are being investigated by the EEOC or other government agencies, and can provide consultations to assist in avoiding an investigation or being prepared in the event an investigation occurs.
Wage & Hour
We frequently handle Fair Labor Standards Act claims on behalf of individuals and employers. We provide free consultations to employees who have performed work for which they have not received compensation and can often provide free legal services, even if you are only out a few hundred dollars.
If you are an hourly employee who worked over 40 hours without receiving time and one-half, or you were misclassified as exempt under the FLSA, please contact us for a free consultation.
For employers, we can help you to quickly analyze your situation and avoid costly litigation when faced with a claim for unpaid overtime.
Non-Compete & Severance
In addition to doing your patriotic duty, these qui tam actions can be highly profitable. We are experienced in qui tam litigation and can provide a free consultation regarding whether you have a claim that should be brought to the attention of the government.
If your situation does not involve taxpayer money, we can still help to advise you regarding reporting your employer’s violation of the law.
You need to be extremely careful, because simply reporting wrongdoing may not be enough to protect you from termination.
Contact us for a consultation regarding your rights.
If you are an employee who is aware that your employer is violating the law and you are not sure what to do, contact us for a free consultation.
If you want advice about the preparation of an employment agreement, have questions about your rights under an employment contract, or would like help with negotiating such an agreement, we can assist you.
Handbooks & Policy Manuals
There are pros and cons to many of the things these written materials typically contain and we can explain them to you and efficiently tailor an employee handbook or policy manual that suits your needs.
We routinely represent workers in front of the Unemployment Compensation Appeal Board and provide free consultations to workers who have been denied unemployment benefits.
If you are an employer seeking advice about how to terminate an employee or have questions regarding a worker’s entitlement to unemployment benefits, we can help by consulting with you and your personnel, and helping you to navigate these treacherous waters.
