When a dispute arises at work, employees often have inaccurate or incomplete information. Lawyers at Weksler Law Group represent individuals in employment disputes help employees either by counseling them through an existing employment situation or, more often, assessing the individual’s rights after they have experienced some adverse employment action such as discrimination, demotion, termination and wrongful discharge, retaliation, or unlawful harassment.
We also deal with a number of issues arising from violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) including violations of regulations regarding minimum wage and overtime pay provisions.
There are a number of state and federal laws under which claims may exist for employees. Unlawful actions on the part of the employer include discrimination or harassment based on some protected status (for example, race, sex, age, national origin, or disability), or retaliation for having raised concerns about discrimination or harassment. Employers may also be held accountable when they violate the Family Medical Leave Act or when they do not pay wages in accordance with state and federal laws that govern overtime compensation and minimum wages. Employees who experience retaliation for raising concerns about illegal conduct on the part of their employers may also bring suit under a number of state and federal whistleblower laws.
Increasingly, employees are subject to restrictions on ability to work elsewhere either through enforcement of non-compete agreements or by employer allegations of a violation of trade secret laws. An employee needs competent and experienced counsel under these circumstances to help protect intellectual property of the employee and to assist them in lawfully transition to a new employment relationship.
Weksler Law Group can represent employees before administrative agencies, like the EEOC. However, litigation is often necessary to enforce the employee’s rights and to recover adequate damages. Litigation in this area can be very involved and intense. This is a highly specialized area of the law, and experience representing employees is critical. Weksler Law Group can represent individuals in this type of dispute, offering a wide-ranging knowledge of the complexities of the various employment laws and available claims.
