Understanding The Rights of Employers and Employees
We provide employment law services such as:
- Employment discrimination representation: This includes representation for employers and employees indiscrimination cases involving race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, and disability.
- Wage and hour disputes: We represent clients in overtime claims, minimum wage claims – which often involves waiters and bartenders in restaurants and bars, nonpayment of commissions, failure to pay final paycheck, and Equal Pay Act violations.
- Retaliation claims: Generally under the law of “employment at will” it is lawful for an employer to discharge an employee for a good reason, a bad reason, or even for no reason. A discharge will only be unlawful if the termination is in retaliation for opposing discrimination or harassment in the workplace, asserting another state or federally protected employment right, or for whistleblowing on an employer.
- Employer audits: We review employment business practices and policies to make certain your company is in compliance with all local, state and federal employment laws.
