Understanding Employment Law
Employment law covers nearly all areas of the employer and employee relationship. There are thousands of federal and state laws that are designed to protect workers' rights in a range of instances, from discrimination in the workplace to illegal wage practices and wrongful termination.
Our Main Areas of Employment Law
Unwanted sexual comments, sexual gestures, and pressure to engage with someone sexually can result in an emotionally distressing workplace and make you feel as though you're not taken seriously in a professional setting.
Our employment lawyer can help bring sexual harassment to an end and make your place of employment safe again.
Sexual assault in the workplace can manifest as unwanted physical contact, unwelcome sexual advances, and more. Whether an employer or a coworker has assaulted you, sexual assault in the workplace is a heinous violation of workers' rights.
You shouldn't have to leave your job to feel safe. Our labor law attorney can help you stand your ground, assert your rights, and make things right for yourself and your fellow employees.
Discrimination exists when an employer treats an employee unfairly due to a characteristic they view as unfavorable.
If you've been treated unfairly due to one of your legally protected characteristics, our employment lawyer can help you assert your rights and protect other people with these same characteristics.

An employer may not prevent or retaliate against an employee who takes FMLA for pregnancy, disabilities, or other medically-substantiated reasons that fall under FMLA protections.
