Areas Within Employment Law
- Wrongful Termination – Getting fired is never a positive experience, but it can be even worse if you believe you were terminated unjustly, like on the basis of your race, sexual orientation, religion, gender, disability, or other protected characteristics. If your employer was truly in the wrong in firing you, we can help you get compensated for your time off work and any ongoing emotional distress you may be experiencing.
- Harassment – Harassment in the workplace has been making a lot of headlines lately, and we can help you take action against your harasser so that there are consequences for their actions.
- Reasonable Accommodation – if you suffer from a disability, you are entitled to a reasonable accommodation. We can assist you in explaining your rights and helping you get the reasonable accommodation you legally deserve.
