Litigation concerning employment and labor law matters requires attorneys experienced in the field. Adverse employment actions taken against a worker can involve being terminated or fired, but can also arise with a change in job assignments or transfer if the actions are taken because an employee is a member of a protected class. A failure to hire, having your hours cut back or being reprimanded or suspended can also raise the same concerns.
Claims involving private sector, local government, state government, or federal government employers and employees each have specific limitations periods to consider. The particulars of the remedies and damages available vary widely. Whether a company executive, manager, supervisor or employee is involved in an issue regarding hiring, firing, harassment, compliance, grievances, benefits, or simply a change in policy, our firm will work to handle your specific needs.
