Representing Employees

Many employees are not aware of the full range of employment rights they have. If you feel that you are being retaliated against, discriminated against, harassed or not paid correctly, we are available to sit down with you and discuss your options. We have the resources and experience to fully litigate any claim you may have.

Employees can face discrimination, harassment and other unlawful treatment in matters such as employment contracts, reasonable accommodations, pre-employment/personality testing, wages, overtime, sexual harassment, wrongful termination and more. If you have made a complaint about your workplace and believe you were fired or are being retaliated against because of it, our seasoned legal team can assist you in determining whether your complaint entitles you to legal protection from retaliation, and if so, whether the employer's actions are unlawful. An employer may not engage in r Retaliation for complaints, including internal complaints, that are based on a good faith belief that unlawful harassment or discrimination is taking place. We can also help to protect your rights by providing legal advice, reviewing contracts and the like.

We routinely provide representation and advice regarding severance agreements. It is important to ask your legal questions before signing a severance agreement because the waiver or release of claims is likely valid and will prevent legal action once you sign.
