Our attorneys have been navigating these laws to our client’s advantage since 1974.

Common Issues in Employment Law
If you have been unlawfully terminated because you became pregnant, had a baby, needed to care for a sick family member or became ill yourself, you may be entitled to compensation including back pay wages. Under federal law, many employees are protected by the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) which allows for family members to take extended time off from work to care for their ill relatives, bond with their newborn or adopted child, or address their own health issues.
If you have been terminated, were denied a promotion, or faced other adverse employment consequences and suspect it may be due to your race, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability, there are laws designed to protect you. If you suspect that your employer lied about the reason behind your termination, we can investigate and determine whether their motives were discriminatory.
It is an all too common occurrence that workers are often denied earned wages. Has your employer forced you to work off the clock? Have you been denied proper overtime compensation? Have you been denied minimum wage? Has your employer withheld wages? If you suspect that your employer has unlawfully withheld wages, we will fight back and hold your employer accountable.
Federal and state law prohibits employers for retaliating against their employees. If your employer terminated you because you spoke out about discriminatory treatment, took medical leave, filed for Workers’ Compensation or unemployment, or made workplace safety complaints, you may be entitled to compensation.
