Discrimination, Harassment and Wrongful Dismissal and Termination

Wrongful termination

If you believe you were wrongfully dismissed or fired by your employer, we can work for you. Wrongful termination means a violation of any law that protects employment.

Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation

Federal and state and local laws entitle employees to fair and equitable employment opportunities, pay, and working conditions regardless of factors such as age, race, religion, nationality, disability, pregnancy, gender, or sexual orientation. If you have been subject to discriminatory treatment based on these or other protected characteristics, call us to discuss your legal options and available compensation for your injuries with our experienced attorneys.

Sexual harassment

We know that sexual harassment in the workplace remains as rampant as it is underreported, and our we approach each client’s case with sensitivity and compassion as well as zealous representation of your rights. Whether your situation involves unwanted sexual advances or coercion by a supervisor or co-worker, inappropriate or threatening actions by an outsider, development of a hostile work environment, or another form of sexual misconduct in your workplace, we can help put an end to unlawful harassment and seek financial compensation for your mistreatment.

Disputes Over Pay – Wage and Hour Disputes

We represent individual employees in compensation disputes as well as groups of employees in wage and hour class action litigation involving issues such as overtime violations, misclassification of employees as exempt versus non-exempt or as independent contractors, commission-based compensation plans, expense reimbursement, and violations of laws concerning meal and rest breaks. Our attorneys are well-versed in the many federal, state, and local laws requiring employers to pay you in full and on time-as well as how to enforce them.

Employment Document Review and Alternatives

Separation agreements

If you have been presented with a separation or severance agreement by your employer, we can review your agreement to ensure you understand its terms and their consequences, make certain your rights are protected, and work to identify and smartly negotiate more beneficial terms for you.

Pre-termination issues

We advise clients whose jobs may be in jeopardy for many reasons, or who may wish to plan for separating from their current employment on the most favorable terms possible. Sound legal counsel can make a major difference in the outcome of your employment separation and your future employment prospects. We can help you approach your situation smartly, counseling you “behind the scenes” or negotiating directly with your employer on your behalf to make sure your interests are protected.

Public employment/civil service

We regularly represent city, county, state, and federal workers in employment issues of all kinds, including internal investigations, disciplinary hearings, and terminations. We are experienced and knowledgeable in the often complex and difficult administrative systems and their related procedural rules involved in representing clients employed in the public sector.

Alternative dispute resolution

Where a lawsuit is not the best way to achieve your goals, we will help you resolve your dispute outside of the courtroom as well. Our attorneys have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration in employment and labor disputes of all kinds.
