Employers and employees are often times confronted with legal issues related to the workplace. Employees may face different types of discrimination and discriminatory practices, including wrongful termination, dealing with a hostile work environment, sexual harassment, on the job defamation, illegal manipulation of time by employers, and denial of leave and benefits.
Employment Law - Special Practice Areas
- Discrimination (age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, disability)
- Harassment which includes creating a hostile work environment, as well as sexual harassment.
- Defamation of character at the workplace, including internet defamation and “Revenge Porn”
- Unfair labor practices (e.g. denial of wages, failure to pay wages and benefits, overtime, tampering with employee timesheets and records)
- Violations of Family Medical Leave Act, Re-Employment Rights Act and Uniformed Services Employment
Sexual harassment goes far beyond improper and unwanted sexual contact. It can include unwanted exposure to sexual advances, jokes, and conduct that creates an otherwise hostile work environment. Sexual harassment cases can be addressed by filing a case with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and/or by bringing a lawsuit under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Harassment in General
Other types of harassment may include anger issues, improper teasing, or verbal threats.
Defamation of Character at the Workplace
This may include fellow colleague or employee improperly posting defamatory comments or nude pictures of an employee without the consent of the individual.
Unfair Labor Practices
An Employer and/or Management may fail to pay overtime, improperly deny wages that the employee has earned, fail to pay wages and benefits that the employee is entitled to, and tamper with employee timesheets and manipulate time records. There are various state and federal laws that will allow us to prosecute this conduct vigorously on the employee's behalf.
Violations of Family Medical Leave Act, Re-Employment Rights Act and Uniformed Services Employment
Employers have a duty to allow employees to take appropriate leave to deal with a spouse's pregnancy or death in the family, or to allow for military leave. We prosecute cases in these areas under federal and state laws.
