Creative, Outside-The-Box Thinking For Complex Problems

As An Employee, You Have Rights. I Will Help You Protect Them.

The balance of power in the workplace can seem to heavily favor the employer, but employees do have protections they can take advantage of with the help of an experienced lawyer. If you have been terminated, there may be issues that I can use to help you pursue justice and compensation.

What Was The Real Reason For The Termination?

Many wrongful terminations are labeled as “corporate downsizing” or given some other term to obscure the fact that the firing may be for illegal reasons. A false, allegedly legally justifiable basis for a termination is referred to as pretext. My extensive experience allows me to hone in on and uncover pretexts so that I can expose the real reason for the termination, failure to promote or refusal to hire.

Common issues that an employer may want to cover up with a pretextual reason include:

  • Race discrimination
  • Gender discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Age discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Workplace retaliation/whistleblower
  • Equal pay claims
  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Claims
  • Unemployment appeals
  • Wrongful termination
  • Other civil rights violations

Standing Up To Employers

Many people feel that there is little that they can do even if they have been wrongfully terminated. At William J. Lasko, Attorney at Law, LLC, I will hold your former employer accountable. I will fight to get you the compensation you deserve for your economic losses. In some cases, I have been able to help clients institute company-wide – and even industry-wide – change. With more than 30 years of experience fighting for wronged employees, I am able to generate the positive results my clients need.

No matter how powerful the employer, I can help level the playing field and secure the compensation you need to help you overcome the challenges your termination created. My representation also includes assistance with negotiating severance packages, avoiding termination when a client is still working for a particular company and helping injured employees navigate the workers’ compensation system.

Do You Have Questions?

Why are my coworkers making more money than me? Why was I laid off while less-qualified people are keeping their jobs? Something was being done wrong at work, I spoke up and I was fired, now what? I was told that if I did not compromise myself I would not get promoted or would lose my job, what do I do? Why were younger, less qualified coworkers promoted instead of me? I wasn’t hired because of my race, what are my rights? I think I may get fired because I disagreed with my boss, what can I do to protect my job? I am working more than 40 hours a week and I am not paid overtime – this has been going on for years, what are my rights?

I will help you find the answers.
