Employment Law to Protect Your Rights

I’m not being paid the same as my coworkers – is that legal? I’m not getting paid overtime – should I be? I asked for a raise and my boss started calling me pushy – how do I get him to stop? I told my boss that I’m pregnant and all the sudden I can’t do anything right – how can I tell her this makes me uncomfortable? My company says the accommodation I asked for is too expensive – are they right?

These are all completely natural questions to ask yourself (and a lawyer) when something doesn’t feel quite right at work or when something has gone completely wrong. Let us help you answer these questions and suggest what your next steps should be. We understand that employment disputes can be emotionally, financially, and professionally draining. Our sensible and practical approach to employment law emphasizes resolution and results and minimizes the hard feelings created in confrontational nature of litigation. Our goal is to help you stand up for your rights, whether you are an employee or an employer. We strive to help employees protect their privacy, dignity, and livelihoods. And, we help employers do right by their employees while minimizing their companies’ exposure to risk and financial loss.
