Your Employment Rights

Discrimination: Successful discrimination claims don’t necessarily require that the offending conduct be blatant, or obvious. If you believe that you are, or have been treated unfairly because of your age, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or a disability, listen to your instincts and contact us for legal advice.

Harassment: If you believe you have suffered harassment because of your race, national origin, religion, age, pregnancy, gender or sexual orientation, you may have a valid claim.

Retaliation: Your employer is prohibited by law from retaliating against you for reporting discrimination, taking part in investigations into discrimination, taking medical leave or for filing a lawsuit.

Denial of Medical Leave claims, and Retaliation for taking Medical leave: Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), covered employees are entitled to up to 12 weeks of leave due to a serious health condition of your own or of an immediate family member.

Wage violations: An employer must pay minimum wages, overtime, and equal pay as prescribed by State and Federal laws.

Whistleblower claims: The law protects employees who report illegal, unsafe, or other improper practices by their employers.

Pension and benefit violation (ERISA) claims: The law provides broad safeguards for your pension or health benefits.

Negligent hire claims: If an employer has negligently hired an employee who has been abusive or discriminating towards you or your child, you may have a valid claim.
