Winning Strategies For Employee-Related Concerns
Today’s employment prospects can be uncertain. For this reason, employees are often afraid to speak up for their rights for fear of losing their job. Regardless of the job market, your employer has certain obligations mandated by state and federal labor law. When your coworkers with skills similar to your own are getting a higher wage or better opportunities than you are, it may be time to take your employer to task for answers. Workplace discrimination is illegal, so is sexual harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination.
Discerning whether your employer has engaged in unlawful behavior can be difficult on your own without the help of an experienced labor law attorney.

Meet William J. Lasko
Knowing your rights is the first step in protecting them. At William J. Lasko, Attorney at Law, LLC, I have spent more than 30 years helping people understand and protect their rights.
“Attorney Lasko was one of three attorneys referred to me by Outten & Golden. I hired attorney Lasko, because he was prompt and proactive. He helped devise an exit strategy from my former employer, then navigate through the separation, which was done so amicably. Moreover, I have been able to successfully secure the maximum severance package allowable from my former employer on the terms that I desired. Overall, it was a positive experience, and I have able to remain on good terms with my former employer. This was a win-win situation. I highly recommend attorney Lasko.”
“I am an experienced paramedic, with awards and decorations, with over 20 years of experience. Recently, I was terminated from my employment through no fault of my own. I had applied for unemployment compensation and was denied. I reached out to attorney Lasko. After a thorough and extensive consultation with attorney Lasko, where he was able to analyze my termination and give me a firm understanding of what my legal rights were as to wrongful termination and unemployment benefits, I retained attorney Lasko. Attorney Lasko was able to put together a highly effective letter that was sent to my former employer which resulted in my re-employment and the winning of unemployment benefits in the appeal process that covered unemployment benefits for the time I was out of work to the time of my re-employment.”
