Our employee attorneys, who are employees of the firm, have been at our labor law firm for seven and nine years. The principal of our law firm has been in business since 1993 representing employees. We only represent employees and we only represent employees on a contingency while advancing all litigation costs. We never require clients to pay money up front in order to be represented. We are only paid when and if we collect money from the employer.
What do our employee lawyers do? We represent employees who have been fired from their jobs, seriously harassed based upon a protected characteristic, injured at work, or who are owed unpaid wages. This means we are litigation and trial lawyers, however we engage in appellate law when the need arises. The employment lawsuits we work on are all filed in court, or are before arbitrators in binding employment arbitrations. While we attempt resolutions on our employment lawsuits, we stand ready to arbitrate or try our employee lawsuits. The goal is always to get the best result for the client.
Employee lawsuits generally involve either whistleblower wrongful termination, or wrongful discharge based upon discrimination. Whistleblowers may be blowing the whistle about unsafe work practices, complaints about unpaid wages, or something illegal their employer is doing. Wrongful termination based upon discrimination involves employment terminations motivated by a protected characteristic such as age, disability, FMLA rights, medical conditions, national origin, pregnancy, race, or sex. Employees who win wrongful termination cases based upon discrimination are supposed to have the employer pay their attorney fees if they win at an actual arbitration or trial.
Employment harassment cases are either usually sexual harassment, or a workers compensation stress issue. However, our firm has successfully recovered sums such as $150,000 for mere racial harassment in settlement. The line between the type of harassment an employee is expected to endure in the normal workplace is something an employee should consult a work lawyer about. Legal standards are not necessarily common sense.
