Attorneys for Employees Who Are Terminated or Discriminated Against
When you agree to employment with a company, you have certain rights as an employee. However, many companies take advantage of their employees by violating federal laws that have been put in place to protect workers. Some of these illegal activities can seem mild at first: the denial of break time or sick time, pressuring employees to “stay a little later,” or underhanded comments about a person’s gender, race, or religion. However, regardless of how small the infraction seems to be, it is important to keep in mind that all of these behaviors are illegal, and that you have a right as an employee to call your employer out on their unscrupulous behaviors.
Different Areas of Employment Law: Beyond Harassment and Wrongful Termination
When most people think of employment law cases, they imagine that they focus solely on situations of sexual harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination. While these areas of law are very important to our employment law practice and are also common claims that employees bring against employers, it’s important to know that there are many other types of employment law that our attorneys can help you with. They include:
- Overtime Violations
- Break Time Violations
- FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) Violations
- Age Discrimination
- Pregnancy Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
- Racial Discrimination
- Religious Discrimination
- Sexual Orientation Discrimination
- Compensation Disputes: Commissions, Bonuses, and Compensation Agreements
- Enforceability of Non-Compete Agreements
- Ethics Violations
- Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
- Wrongful Termination
Many employees are not aware that their rights have been violated in the workplace. Employers will dodge their questions, claim that what they’re doing is legal, or threaten the employee with termination if they complain about the conditions or if they take the time off that is legally due to them. At Yadegar Minoofar & Soleymani, we understand that a dispute of this nature with your employer can be devastating. We have helped many men and women who have been the unfortunate victims of illegal workplace policies or harassment and who have experienced an intense fear of losing their income coupled with the dread of returning to an job where they are mistreated every day.
