Job loss and stress at work can be tremendously damaging and long lasting.

We give personal, practical, and sophisticated legal advice and provide experienced representation to people when they need it the most. The law of the workplace has become a complicated web of statutes, caselaw, rules, and regulations. In most employment situations, the deck is stacked heavily against you. Your employer has all the resources and legal counsel and other professionals working on its behalf.

We’ll help you simplify the complexity, level the playing field, and get you the fair shake that you deserve. Put our experience to work for you.

We’ve successfully handled all kinds of employment disputes involving:

Wrongful Termination and Discrimination

We tirelessly advocate for victims of employment discrimination based on:

  • Race
  • Ethnicity and national origin
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Age

  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Any other unlawful discrimination or wrongful termination

Wages and Compensation

Just about every employer screws this up one way or another, including:

  • Unpaid overtime, including misclassifying as overtime exempt
  • misclassification of independent contractors

  • Commission and bonuses
  • Unequal pay between men and women

Harassment

There’s nothing we can’t stand more than a creep or a bully. We aggressively protect the rights of employees who have suffered sexual harassment on the job. We’ve also helped people with their claims for harassment based on other unlawful characteristics such as disability, race, age, national origin, religion, and other bases.

Leaves of Absence

Employees eligible for leave are generally entitled to take it, and employers cannot discriminate or retaliate against them because they took it, including leave for:

  • Family and Medical Leave Act leave
  • Pregnancy and maternity leave
  • Disability related leave and other accommodations
  • Paid leave

Retaliation and Whistleblowing

We protect the rights of employees and others who have the courage to come forward to report the illegal conduct of their employers under the federal False Claims Act and other whistleblower protection laws.

Non-Compete Agreements and Confidentiality Agreements

We routinely advise employees on non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements and nondisclosure agreements to best protect their rights (now and in the future).

Employment Contracts

New jobs bring excitement and opportunity, but (like anything) nothing lasts forever. Circumstances can change quickly. Make sure your employment agreement is fair and you’re protected at the front of your employment before it’s too late.

Severance Agreements

If your employment is ending (whether voluntarily or involuntarily) you’ll want to close this chapter in your life with as much security and consideration as possible. We’ll guide you through the process and negotiate your severance to maximize your exit package.

While the legal system can be intimidating and confusing, we offer experienced guidance that can often help bring a positive and quick resolution to claims. Contact us to schedule a time to talk for free.
