As an employee, you are guaranteed certain rights under both federal law and your employment contract. If you suspect you are facing unfair treatment by your employer or coworkers, contact Brunton Law Offices today for a FREE employment law consultation.
We protect the rights of employees who have been unfairly or illegally treated in the workplace, handling claims involving:
Discrimination: If you have been treated differently than others at work because you filed a workers' compensation claim, health conditions (to minimize health insurance costs), or because of race, gender, age, religion, national origin, or other suspect classifications, we will help you recover compensation for your unfair treatment, whether it entails discharge, the denial of a promotion, the exclusion from certain benefits or other disparate treatment. We also represent women who have been treated differently because they are pregnant.
Sexual harassment: We protect the rights of individuals who have either been offered a job-related benefit in exchange for sexual favors or who have been subjected to a hostile work environment based on sex. This can include an environment where sexual references, innuendos, pictures, jokes, and other materials are forced upon you.
Retaliatory discharge: We represent workers who have been fired because they reported employer misconduct (whistle-blower actions), as well as people who have been discharged in retaliation for filing workers' compensation or other legitimate claims.
Wrongful termination or discharge: If you have been fired in breach of an employment contract or in violation of the law, we will help you recover full and fair compensation for lost wages and income, as well as other damages.
Violation of state or federal worker protection laws: We handle all types of claims under worker protection statutes, including Title VII, the Civil Rights Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
