Employment discrimination is a form of discrimination based on race, gender, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, and age by employers.
Wage and Benefit Disputes
Call us if you haven't been paid for overtime, been misclassified as salaried vs. hourly, have failed to receive appropriate meal and rest breaks, been forced to work off the clock, failed to receive pay for prep time, or didn't receive wages due at termination.
Hostile Work Environment
A hostile work environment is a form of harassment. It is demonstrated by such severe and pervasive conduct that permeates the work environment and interferes with an employee's ability to perform his or her job.
Sexual harassment is where any unwanted attention is received by fellow employees.
If you're concerned about safety issues at your workplace, you should consider consulting a labor lawyer for advice on how to proceed. We'll help you to protect your health while guarding against unfair retaliation for whistleblowing.
Employees should follow company rules for reporting wrongdoing; but if the issue continues, and you feel you need to appeal to an outside authority, the advice of an attorney who specializes in whistleblowing and workplace retaliation is invaluable.
It is vital to understand what your rights are in regards to health benefits. Adequate health coverage is one of the most important benefits to consider when negotiating with an employer. Knowing the labor laws is the first step.
Wrongful termination is a situation in which an employee's employment has been terminated by the employer in circumstances where the termination breaches one or more terms of the employee/employer agreement or contract.
