Representing Clients Nationwide
If you’re dealing with illegal difficulties in workplace such as discrimination or unsafe conditions, you don’t have to sit idly by and suffer because an employer is biased or unwilling to respect your rights. There are several federal laws in existence today that protect the rights of employees from being treated unfairly, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, Occupational Safety and Health Act, and Family and Medical Leave Act. Chávez Law Group dedicates a large amount of time and resources to helping clients get compensated by employers who break these laws.
Goals of an Employment Law Attorney
Illegal behaviors like paying below minimum wage, withholding overtime pay, passing over an employee for a promotion based on age, or failing to hire someone because of race may be hard to prove. An employment law attorney can look into the situation and help you secure proof of mistreatment. In cases like sexual harassment cases where it may come down to the employees word against the employer’s, a successful investigation is paramount to achieving a resolution. With discriminatory hiring and firing practices, it may come down to asking the right questions in court, or uncovering instances of illegal discrimination in the past.
A good legal strategy can help you get fair compensation for the wrongdoing, which may include missed pay, attorney’s fees, missed benefits, reinstatement, promotion, or other resolution.
