Practice Areas:

  • Employment Discrimination

    The law prohibits an employer from taking an adverse action against you because of your age, your gender, the color of your skin, your race, your national origin, your religion, or your disability. The law also prohibits harassment at work because of your sex.

    • Age
    • Gender
    • National Origin
    • Disability
    • Race
    • Sexual Harassment
    • Pregnancy
    • Religion
    • Family and Medical Leave
  • Retaliation/Whistleblowing

    The law protects you from retaliation after you report discrimination or unlawful conduct by your employer. It may also protect you when you are retaliated against for making legitimate complaints about working conditions. The law may also protect you when you report financial improprieties by your employer.
  • Employment Contracts.

    Is your employer telling you that you have to sign a non-compete agreement?  Is your prospective employer offering an Employment Agreement that you don’t understand?  We know how to negotiate Employment Agreements and we know how to make them work for you.

    You took a new job with a competitor and now your former employer is suing to stop you from working. How are you going to pay your bills in the meantime?  There are defenses but you need someone who knows how to take on the overreaching employer.

    Are you being paid what was promised when you took the job? Did you quit another job to take a new position and then were told that you were being terminated?

  • Union Representation.

    Few things are as complicated and contentious as union labor negotiations. If you are a member or officer of a labor union,  we are the help you need to understand your rights, your employer’s obligations, and your options when things go wrong.  We have experience in all aspects of public and private sector labor disputes, including:

    • Collective Bargaining Negotiations
