Employment Law

Wrongful Termination

An action for wrongful termination arises where the employer violates a public policy that is based on a constitutional or statutory provision. If your employment has been terminated because you took a medical leave, complained about unsafe work conditions, disclosed your wages, or refused to engage in unlawful conduct, you may have a wrongful termination claim.

Additionally, if you were terminated because of your race, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, medical condition, gender, age, or sexual orientation, you may have a claim for discrimination as well as a claim for wrongful termination.

If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated, you should contact us to help you determine if you have a wrongful termination claim.

Discrimination

It is well settled law that an employer must treat you equally regardless of your race, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, medical condition, gender, age, or sexual orientation. If you feel that you have been denied employment, terminated from your employment, denied a raise or benefits, or a leave of absence as a result of your race, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, medical condition, gender, age, or sexual orientation, you should contact us to help you determine if you have a discrimination claim. 

Sexual Harassment

It is unlawful for a supervisor or co-worker to create a hostile work environment or make sexual advances at work. Sexual harassment need not be based on sexual desire, it can me male on male or female on female as well. Some examples of sexual harassment are:

  • Unwelcome touching of a sexual nature
  • Making sexual advances (verbally or non-verbally)
  • Making offensive comments
  • Displaying sexually explicit images/videos/cartoons/objects

If you feel that you are a victim of sexual harassment, you should contact us to help you determine if you have a sexual harassment claim.
