Employment cases on the rise
With the downturn of the U.S. economy over the past few years, employment lawsuits are increasing. Litigation rises in an economic downturn because regulators tend to step up enforcement, laid-off workers head to court, and companies need to file more suits to collect monies owed to them.
If you believe you have been a victim of wrongdoing by your employer, or perhaps are management looking to protect your company from an employment lawsuit, I can determine if you have a case worth fighting. Through my many years of practicing law, I have helped both the employer and the employee in matters pertaining to employment ranging from discrimination, wrongful termination, defamation and more. I work with you from the initial complaint through the filing of a lawsuit, through the litigation and any appeal.
I concentrate in the areas of:
- Wrongful termination
- Non-competition and restrictive covenants
Fighting for justice for all
Employment discrimination refers to discriminatory practices in the workplace such as a bias in recruiting, hiring, financial or benefit compensation, job assignment or promotion, and termination based on personal characteristics. Job discrimination can also include sexual harassment or other factors that create a hostile work environment.
For many years I have served clients in cases of employment discrimination involving age, gender, race and disability. Whereas discrimination is defined as the unequal treatment or consideration of a person based on social category or class rather than on his or her individual merit, workplace discrimination can take many forms. Sometimes the matter is direct, and other times it can result in more indirect actions. My experience can help you rectify—both legally and personally—the discrimination you have suffered.
