Aggressive Employment Litigation Attorneys Who Will Fight for Your Rights

Header Line

Do you have an employment legal matter concerning discrimination, wrongful termination or harassment?

If an employer violates federal laws such as those set by Title VII, Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or state or local laws, employment litigation may become necessary.  Employment litigation involves issues including (but not limited to):

  • Breach of contract
  • Workplace harassment, racial, sexual, or otherwise
  • Trade secrets and non-compete agreements
  • Wrongful termination
  • Whistle-blowing and retaliation
  • Discrimination against protected statuses, including sex, disability, and race

Many of the issues listed above are federal crimes, and should be taken very seriously.  Contact a qualified employment litigation attorney right away with any questions or concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to verify the citizenship of my employees if I am a small business owner?

Yes. Employers in the U.S. must verify both the identity and the employment eligibility of each of their employees. They must also verify whether or not their employees are U.S. citizens. These regulations were enacted by the Immigration Reform and Control Act. An employer would file an I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification Form) and look over the employees submitted documentation alleging eligibility. By law, the employer must keep the I-9 forms for all employees until 3 years after the date of hiring, or until 1 year after termination (whichever comes last).

I pay some of my employees a salary. That means I do not have to pay them overtime, correct?

No, paying an employee a true salary is but one step in properly classifying them as exempt from the overtime requirements under federal law. They must also fit the “duties test” which requires certain job duties (and lack of others) before they can be considered exempt under the law.

How does the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) impact employers?

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), eligible private employers are required to provide leave for selected military, family, and medical reasons. Note that the required leave under this law is unpaid.
