What Employment Issue Are You Facing?
Many different issues can arise in today’s workplace. Our firm offers a full range of employment law services, designed to address your particular needs. Some of the most common situations that we handle include:
- Employment contracts — From noncompete clauses and unfair terms of employment to severance agreements, we can guide you forward in asserting your legal rights effectively and making a claim against your employer.
- Wrongful termination — Employers like to claim that most employment is at will. But at-will employment laws only are limited in there scope and terminating someone wrongfully is possible, as is the case when an employer breaks the law or acts against acceptable public policies by violating federal, state, or local employment laws (such as firing someone for being a whistleblower).
- Discrimination — Sex, race and age are only the most obvious types of improper job discrimination. No matter what happened, we can help you understand your options and move forward with confidence.
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations — If your employer violated the FLSA, we can help you challenge the violations and pursue proper compensation.
