As An Employee, You Have Rights. We 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 we 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 was for illegal reasons. A false legally justifiable basis for a termination is referred to as pretext. Our firm’s extensive experience allows us to hone in on and uncover pretexts so that we 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

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?
