There are a host of regulations, both state and federal, which can give rise to employment litigation. Whether your case arises under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), we can help you navigate the complex maze of employment law.

Wrongful Termination

State and federal laws prohibit the firing of an employee on the basis of religion, gender, ethnicity, race, or disability. The law further prohibits the firing an employee because the employee reports and employers wrongful or illegal practices (also known as whistleblowing). We strive to stay on the forefront of such issues. For example, did you know under the Dodd-Frank Act if you and wrongfully terminated after whistleblowing regarding a securities' violation you may be due twice the amount of back pay due along with attorneys' fees? If you believe you have been fired for one of these reasons, you should contact an attorney.

Unpaid Wages And Unpaid Overtime

Employees are entitled to at least the mandatory minimum wage and overtime wages from their employer. An employment attorney can help you take action if you're due money from your employer. For example, did you know that under the upcoming Fair Labor Standards Act Regulation change, more employees who were previously exempt will be entitled to time and a half overtime pay? This rule change will affect both salary and hourly workers. For more information, contact an attorney today.
