Workplace Discrimination And Other Employment Law Issues


State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability and other protected classes. Discrimination includes wrongful termination, failure to promote, and other adverse employment actions.

  • The right to take medical leave
  • The right to overtime pay for workers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and applicable state law
  • The right to seek redress for sexual harassment, unlawful retaliation and other prohibited acts


If you have been wrongfully discharged or subjected to other prohibited employment practices, the best way to ensure the protection of your rights is to contact an experienced employment law attorney. An employment law attorney can answer your questions, explain the process and vigorously protect your rights.
