Litigation Services for Employees and Employers
As employees, individuals have the legal right to expect a safe and fair work environment. When a person faces discrimination at work for any reason, there are legal avenues to pursue compensation. Our firm represents those who have been the target of illegal workplace actions. Regardless of whether the offending party was an executive, supervisor or co-worker, our firm is experienced in obtaining justice for victims.
Knowing that not all discrimination claims are valid, our firm also provides legal representation to help employers defend against employee discrimination claims. We provide skilled litigation services aimed at mitigating damages and protecting our clients’ businesses.
We provide employment litigation services in the following areas:
- Sexual harassment
- Age discrimination
- Employment discrimination
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Retaliatory discharge
- Wage and hour disputes
If an individual has been denied unemployment benefits for any reason, he or she has the right to file an appeal and request a DES (Division of Employment Security, formerly the Employment Security Commission) hearing. In addition, an employer has the right to appeal any decision granting unemployment benefits to its former employees. In both instances, our law firm provides legal advice and representation for clients at any stage of the unemployment benefits process. Our lawyers have gone through numerous appeals hearings and have taken some cases through to the Superior Court.
