Cases & Matters We Handle:
Breach of Contract
When your employer has breached the terms of your employment agreement (regarding commission, severance, or any other terms), you have a claim for breach of contract.
When you are subjected to unwanted verbal, physical, visual misconduct (e.g., jokes, slurs, touching) on the basis of age, disability, national origin, race, color, religion, sex or sexual orientation (for example, quid pro quo sexual harassment).
When you have suffered damages as a result of employer's tortious conduct including wrongful termination in violation of public policy, negligent supervision/ hiring/ training, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation/slander, or invasion of privacy, etc.
When you have been treated unfairly or prejudicially because of your age, disability, national origin, race, color, religion, sex or sexual orientation, including pregnancy (e.g., violation of equal pay laws).
Performance Improvement Plans & Write-Ups
When you have been issued a PIP or write-up, it is often the precursor to a wrongful termination. We can help you draft a grievance or response to put in your personnel file and proactively protect you.
When you have separated from employment and would like to apply for unemployment benefits through the state, we can walk you through the process and represent you at all unemployment hearings.
Employment & Severance Agreement Reviews
About to start or separate from employment? Have us review your employment, independent contractor, non-compete, non-disclosure, and severance agreements before you sign off.
When your employer fails to engage in the interactive process with you regarding your medical condition and/or fails to provide you a reasonable accommodation, as required under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Wage & Hour Violations
When your employer has misclassified your employment status and/or failed to pay you your earned wages (including minimum wage, overtime, and wages).
When you have been subjected to an adverse action (i.e., disciplinary action) or prohibited personnel practice (e.g., Whistleblower Protection Act violation). Includes representation before MSPB, EEOC, OSC & OIG.
When your employer takes an adverse action against you for whistleblowing, reporting discrimination/harassment, and/or engaging in a protected EEO activity (e.g., seeking an accommodation for a disability).
