It is important to know whom you can turn to and trust in the event your employment rights have been violated, especially when you have taken the appropriate steps to handle your concern but have not been taken seriously.
It is often during these occasions in which employees will ignore their concerns simply because they do not know if their concern is valid or not and what to do about it. If you have been a victim of the following cases, you should consider consulting with an employment attorney immediately:
- Wage and Overtime Theft
- Sexual Harassment
- Discrimination (age, race, sex, religious, disability, sexual orientation, retaliation, and housing)
- Family and Medical Leaves (FMLA)
- Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights (USERRA)
- Civil Rights violations
The most common types of labor and employment disputes are issues such as wrongful termination, retaliation, and wage and hour issues. When an employee has a labor and employment dispute, an employment attorney can help to keep a potentially volatile situation more peaceful and can aid in collecting the necessary information in order to prove the allegation.
An employment attorney can also help in filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for discriminatory practices, as well as with the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor for wage and hour complaints.
